This recipe is simply addictive, and it doesn’t matter if you eat it as a dip directly out of the bowl, spread it on toast, as a flavour maker on a salad, or even as a jacket potato topping. Either way you will love it!

Boil or roast the beetroot?

You can roast or boil the beets but roasting them will make them slightly sweeter and add a smoky flavour.  We chose to boil them because we bought baby beets and we find them naturally sweet enough.

Before processing the chickpeas, boil them for a short time and then peel to obtain a smoother, silkier texture. Adjust the thickness of the hummus by adding extra olive oil or some of the chickpea cooking water.
