Beetroot Hummus Recipe

I recently ate dinner at a friend’s house and she made us hummus with veggies and crackers as an entree and I was reminded how simple and delicious hummus is.

It is also very healthy and it contains high levels of protein, as well as iron, calcium, fibre and antioxidants. It is also made from whole foods and when you make it at home it contains no nasty preservatives or additives.

So I pulled out my old hummus recipe and played with it a bit and have been making a lovely batch of this beetroot hummus every  single week. I leave it in the fridge and then pull it out as a dip, or an accompaniment to wraps or rice. It is very versatile and so good.

Feel free to play around with it adding more or less beetroot as you would like.

I hope you like it.

The beetroot in this recipe adds a lovely sweet flavour to the Hummus and it also adds a striking colour. Feel free to steam or boil your beetroot or even use some from a can if you are in a rush.
