Jeremy absolutely loves hummus and I’m pretty sure he eats it every day. I am a big fan of hummus too, but sometimes I like to make it a little more interesting and colourful – this is where beetroot comes in very handy. Beetroot gives the hummus a really cool, pinkish reddish colour that will make your table look much more vibrant. It also makes the hummus taste a little more earthy which I personally like.
I like hummus as a snack together with fresh carrots, capsicum, cucumber…you name it. This recipe is super easy, fast to make, delicious and goes perfectly in nourish bowls or with any Mediterranean-inspired dishes.
