Hummus with a BEET!


Here I am getting ready for the second Mohubb’s of the winter, and I can’t help thinking how good last week’s event was. Thanks to the help of some AMAZING volunteers we managed to make lots of delicious food and a variety of snacks!

One of the snacks was this colourful beet hummus. An absolute success!!! If you are looking for an alternative to the plain chickpea hummus, here’s an idea.

  • 4 small peeled beets, roughly chopped
  • 2 cans no-salt-added chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • 1/3 cup tahini or sunflower butter
  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped
  • 1/4 cup lemon or lime juice
  • 1/4 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • salt
  • cumin
  • other spices to taste
  • 2 tbsp olive oil

Combine all ingredients in a food processor and process until very smooth, 2 to 3 minutes, stopping occasionally to scrape down the sides of the bowl. If the consistency is too thick add water or oil. if too runny add more chickpeas or beets.
