Beetroot not only tastes amazing, but also has amazing health benefits. It’s high in vitamin C, is fibre rich and contains minerals such as potassium and magnesium.

The wonderful bright pink colour makes it look so appealing on your plate - colourful foods look so much more appetising!

If you have a hand blender or food processor you’ll be able to make this hummus easily and very quickly. You can still make it without a blender, but it will take a little longer to mash and it will have a thicker consistency.

What you will need:

  • 1 medium roasted beetroot peeled
  • Can chickpeas drained
  • Juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • 1 large garlic clove crushed
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor and blend mixture until smooth.

Delicious on toasted rye or sourdough, also yummy served with a salad of your choice. I love to top with chopped walnuts!
