The beetroot hummus
Spice up your hummus and put colours in your life! Don't you just love this beautiful pink? I'm sure your kids would love this recipe, how often do you get to eat bright pink food really?
It won’t take more than 20 minutes to prepare it.
Beetroot, 2 small
Chickpeas, about 350gr (I used a can)
Garlic, 2 gloves
Tahini, 2 tablespoon
Juice of one lemon
Olive oil, 4 tablespoon
You can either roast, boil or steam beetroots until they soften. Allow them to cool down before using them. (Or you can buy them already cooked actually).
Put the chickpeas, beetroot, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil in the blender; mix until smooth – although to be fair, I quite like it with tiny bits so it gives some texture to it. Add salt and pepper to your taste.
I’m not going to tell you how to eat hummus… I have it with some raw vegetables or wholegrain toast or bread. Whatever works for you!
