Beetroot Hummus

Beetroot Hummus


400g beetroots
400g can chickpeas (not drained)
0.25 C chickpea liquid (or water if your chickpeas have no liquid)
4 cloves garlic (more or less to taste)
2 T lime or lemon juice
3 T tahini
0.25 t salt (more or less to taste)


Roast the beetroots by wrapping them in aluminium foil and putting them in the oven at 220 degrees Celcius for 45 - 60 minutes. They will be done if a knife goes through them easily. Let the beetroots cool before peeling them. Take the skin off the garlic cloves, and place them in a blender with all the other ingredients, including the beetroot. Blend until combined and smooth. You can adjust the blending time depending on how smooth you like your hummus to be. Add more salt if desired.

Such an amazing project which results in amazing veg to feed us throughout the week ! It has also introduced us to veg we might otherwise not have tried and love them now. And it's all local and chemical free! Cannot recommend it enough :)
