Simple Beetroot Hummus Recipe

Beetroot Hummus:

Ingredients:

  • 1 large or 2 small beetroots
  • 2 cups cooked chickpeas (roughly two tins, drained)
  • ½ cup hemp seed oil (can sub for extra virgin olive oil)
  • ¼ – ½ cup filtered water
  • 4 tablespoons of tahini
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon ginger powder
  • 1 teaspoon Himalayan sea salt
  • Cracked pepper to taste

Beetroot Hummus

Method:

1. Pre-heat the oven to 180 degrees fan-forced. Spike the beetroot a few times with a fork or metal skewer. Roast for 40 – 60 minutes until tender

2. Remove them from the oven. Once cool, slip the skin off and roughly cut into small cubes (I recommend saving the skin for a smoothie or casserole dish – it contains an abundance of minerals)!

3. Place all of the ingredients except for the water in a food processor. Blend, adding small amounts of water until you reach your desired hummus consistency.

4. Season with salt, pepper & a generous pour of hemp oil.

The hummus keeps well in the fridge for 5 days. The colour will fade, but the flavour & nutrient density will not!
