RECIPE: Our Easy Organic Roast Beetroot Hommus Dip May 03 2016, 0 Comments

 

Our easy Organic Roast beetroot hommus

This vibrant healthy beet hommus was used in our Organic Meal Deals last week.

Ingredients:

  • Bunch of baby beets / 3 medium beetroot
  • Can chickpeas
  • Olive oil
  • garlic clove or organic crushed garlic
  • Tahini (optional)
  • Lemon (juiced)
  • salt
  • pepper

Directions:

  1. Cut the ends off your beets but leave the remainder of the skin intact
  2. Wrap your beets in foil and drizzle with a little olive oil and salt
  3. Roast beets in the oven for approx. 30 – 40 mins on 180 degrees or until soft (this will depend on what size beets you use)
  4. Once roasted allow to cool and then pop in the food processor and blend
  5. Add one can of drained, washed chickpeas
  6. Add the juice of one lemon
  7. Add one clove of crushed garlic
  8. Blend together in food processor
  9. Add olive oil whilst the ingredients are blending until it forms a smooth thick paste consistency. If it’s still grainy add a little lemon and oil
  10. Add salt and pepper to taste

You could also add a mild chilli, cumin or tahini to flavour to your taste, however we didn’t use in our batch as the beetroot flavour was strong enough

Enjoy! GM.
