Beetroot hummus

Category: 

Besides traditional chickpea hummus there are countless variants. Chickpeas are replaced with different types of legumes or the classic mixture of chickpeas, tahini, lemon and garlic is accompanied by different types of vegetables and spices. The beetroot hummus is one of these variants. The baked beetroot goes perfectly with the delicate chickpea flavour and surprises everyone with its lively and cheerful colour.

Ingredients

For 1 Batch(es)

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • tahini (sesame paste) to taste (I used 3 tsp)
  • 1 large garlic clove
  • 0.5 lemon (only the juice)
  • 4 small beetroots
  • salt and pepper to taste

Beetroot hummus Directions

  1. Wash the beets. Remove the skin, cover them with aluminum foil and bake in preheated oven at 200° C until they are tender. Once cooked allow them to cool down.

  2. Drain the chickpeas. In a bowl of a mixer insert all ingredients except the olive oil. Blend it all until the mixture becomes smooth. Transfer the hummus into a bowl, sprinkle with a few teaspoons of olive oil and a bit of sesame seeds for garnish. The hummus becomes tastier after a few hours when the flavors have blended. Regulate with salt and pepper if necessary and serve.
