Quick Hummus with Shredded Beetroot

Quick Hummus with Shredded Beetroot


This is a super quick recipe so I’ll keep this even quicker! It’s a delicious hummus with a gorgeous sweet, zingy beet topping. QUICK TIP: the recipe will be even FASTER if you just use that pre-cooked beetroot in the vacuum packed plastic! You’ll miss the sweet roasted vibes from the home-cooked beetroot, but you’ll save yourself around an hour of prep! Bingo!

For the Hummus

1 tin chickpeas (drained, and rinsed. Reserve the liquid for when you need some aquafaba)
1/2 tsp sea salt
6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
4 tbsp water
3 tsp tahini
3 tbsp lemon juice

For the Beetroot

3 medium beetroot
1 tbsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp pomegranate molasses
pinch sea salt and pepper

To Serve

small bunch fresh parsley
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

To make the hummus

Place all the ingredients in a food processor or high speed blender. Blend until smooth. Set aside

To make the beetroot

Preheat the oven to 170c. Wrap the beets in tin foil, place on a baking tray and roast for 30-40 minutes or until a knife inserts easily into the beet.

Remove the tinfoil and leave to cool for 20 minutes. Once cool, grate the beetroot into a medium bowl. Mix with the remaining ingredients.

To Serve

In a medium bowl, put the hummus, top with the beetroot and garnish with a good drizzle of olive oil and bunch of torn parsley.
