Beetroot hummus dip

Especially during the summer, home-made dip makes the perfect snack or addition to your picnic. This healthy beetroot hummus dip is one of our favourites and creates a fantastic colour too.


(serves 6)

Chickpeas 1 can, drained and rinsed

Cooked beetroot 2

Garlic 2 cloves

Tahini 2 tbsp

Extra virgin olive oil 1/4 cup

Juice of lemon 1/2

Lemon zest 1, for garnish

Salt and pepper pinch

Water 2-4 tbsp (optional)

How to make

Simply place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until you get a smooth texture. If the consistency is too thick, add a few tablespoons of water or an extra dash of olive oil if preferred.

Serve in a bowl alongside carrot, cucumber or pepper slices as a light snack. This is also delicious served with warm bread, crackers or salad (such as this giant couscous salad).

Don't forget to garnish with lemon zest as a finishing touch. Enjoy!
