Beetroot hummus recipe

 

If you didn’t know by now, I have to tell you that I am a huge fan of hummus. There are so many reasons why and I have detailed them all in my Turmeric houmous with roasted cherry tomatoes recipe.

I am seriously thinking about making a blog category just for it, as there are so many ways to prepare it. There are all sorts of colours and flavours as well.

Today we’re going to make a hummus with beetroot pesto. Its beautiful colour and smooth consistency make it so special.
I like it with on a warm pita bread and Julienne cut veggies (like peppers, celery or carrots). You should definitely try it as a snack when you have friends over or on a movie night.

First we’ll start with the beetroot pesto recipe:

300g steamed beetroot
2 garlic cloves
1 tsp smoked Maldon salt
150g extra virgin olive oil
40g grated Parmesan

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until you get a smooth paste, about 2 minutes. 
Put the pesto in a jar and keep it in the fridge. It will last for about a week.
