Beetroot hummus


No tahini required for this bright, tasty and healthy beetroot hummus! Serve with toasted pitta bread or crudités.



  1. Cut the beetroot into small chunks (about eight pieces per beetroot) and place into a blender. Immediately wash your hands, or the beetroot will stain!

  2. Add the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, salt and oil. Pulse until smooth, adding a splash of water if necessary – some beetroots are wetter than others, and it’s easier to loosen a hummus than thicken one up again. Sprinkle over the seeds, if using.
