Regular hummus is delicious; but if you’re tired of the same thing and want to experiment, this beet hummus ticks all the boxes. Like hummus, it’s creamy and delicious. The beets give it a gorgeous pink hue (yes, our brains are wired to like colourful food), but don’t overpower the taste of the hummus with their earthy taste. Don’t even get me started on all the extra nutrients you get from it. It’s a beet dip that even beet haters can get behind.
You can serve the beet hummus with veggie chips, veggie sticks, bread or on a sandwich. A ridiculously good combination is rye bread, beet hummus, caramelised onions, avo and cheese! (tried and tested right after I made this).
While I was busy with beets, I sliced up a few, tossed them in olive oil and baked them for the crispiest veggie chips. Warning they do shrink once cooked. Serve them with the beet dip, stuff them into sandwiches or use them as a healthy snack.
