Beetroot Hummus

beetroot-hummus

Being half Israeli, hummus is one of my favourite foods and a staple food in my house. With so many gorgeous beetroots around at the moment, this is a great way to get the beetroot into you and your kids in a fun, colourful and yummy way!

Beetroots are so good for us for many reasons. They are high in iron and folate so wonderful to eat through pregnancy and they are also wonderful for the blood and heart. Eat beets!

Ingredients

1 tin organic chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
2 small raw beetroots (or 1 large)
Quarter cup purified water
2 tbsp tahini paste
5 tbsp lemon juice
4 tbsp olive oil
Half tsp Himalayan salt
4 cloves garlic, minced

Method

Steam the beetroot in a steamer until soft.

Once soft, put them in the blender and once blended, add the rest of the ingredients and blend until smooth.

Garnish with olive oil and coriander.

Love & health,
Lauren
