Beetroot Hummus 

This modern take on the classic hummus is a great way to increase your veggie intake and add some colour into your diet. 

Ingredients You’ll Need:

  • 500g raw beetroot
  • 2 x 400g cans chickpeas, drained
  • Juice 2 lemons
  • 1 tbsp ground cumin

Step 1.

Cook the beetroot in a large pan of boiling water with the lid on for 30-40 mins until tender. When they’re done, a skewer or knife should go all the way in easily. Drain, then set aside to cool.

Step 2.

Pop on a pair of rubber gloves. Pull off and discard the roots, leaves/stalk and peel of the cooled beetroot. Roughly chop the flesh. Whizz the beetroot, chickpeas, lemon juice, cumin, 2 tsp salt and some pepper. Serve swirled with a little yogurt, some toasted cumin seeds, a little torn mint and some crusty bread.

Place the apples, cabbage and beetroot in a large bowl. Mix together the vinegar, lemon juice, oil and seasoning and pour over the cabbage mixture. Mix well, then stir in the pomegranate and parsley just before serving.
