This hummus subtle earthy flavour is the main reason for giving it a go but, it's not the only one.

Beetroot Hummus, Pink Food

Beetroot Hummus is also an easy way to incorporate a vegetable in your five a day. It may be lurid pink but it's also smooth and totally yummy. Perfect with pita or veggies.

For this recipe, I boiled the beetroot though normally I bake beets. Baking beetroots brings the flavours out however it also takes slightly longer. A friend of mine microwaves hers and she swears by that method. Either way, you'll need a cook beetroot.

I saw this on social media and swooned. What a beautiful colour. So vibrant! I imagine it tastes amazing too. We have a load of huge beetroots ready to harvest in the garden, so this may be perfect to use a couple..... xx

Looks amazing, I really need to try this. I bought lots of cooked beetroot for the cold beetroot soup I was making and I have two packets left... thanks for the idea (!)
