Roasted Beetroot Hummus – Dip to Impress

Roasted Beetroot Hummus – Dip to Impress

This beetroot hummus is  super simple, flavourful, nutritional drop kick of a recipe. The purple goodness has this wow factor that every party or gathering should have. Did I mention it is also vegan friendly?

I love my quick and easy recipes. Whenever the sun is out I want to spend as much time outdoors enjoying the weather and not cooking in the kitchen. This creamy hummus dip is a total cinch to make (especially if you use canned chickpeas) and everyone loves it. Pack up some raw vegetables and start catching that essential vitamin D.

Toppedwith Tip: This beetroot hummus dip doubles as an amazing sandwich spread, particularly on crusty sourdough with avocado, sprouts, and fresh herbs.

Roasted Beetroot Hummus ingredients

  • 1  can of cooked chickpeas

  • 1/8 cup olive or flax oil
  • 1/8-cup raw tahini (sesame paste)
  • Juice of 2 lemon

Method

1. Place beetroot (with the skin on) in a baking dish, add garlic and drizzle some olive oil. Preheat oven 400°F/200°C  and bake until you can easily peace it, about 45 minutes to 1 hour, depending on their size. Once beetroot is roasted cool it down and peel the skin off.
2. Drain and rinse the chickpeas.
3. Put chickpeas, roasted beetroot and the rest of the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth.
4. It’s thicker than the hummus you buy in the store, so you can add some more lemon juice, oil or tahini if you like.
5. Garnish hummus with sesame seeds and chopped parsley. Alternatively you can keep it in the jar in the fridge for up to seven days.
