Beetroot Hummus

I am a huge hummus fan, any variety, any time of day. I think people can be daunted at the thought of making it themselves at home but it really is super easy and quick to make. All you need is a food processor or stick blender to whizz all of the ingredients together. Tahini (sesame seed paste), is the only ingredient you might not be able to find in your local store but it is becoming more readily available these days, from large supermarkets to health food shops and deli's. 



  • 2 small beetroot , roasted and cooled
  • 400g tin chickpeas
  • 8 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 4 garlic cloves
  • Sea salt and black pepper, to taste


  1. Place all of the ingredients into the bowl of a food processor, blend until creamy.
  2. Taste and add seasoning as you wish. If the hummus is too thick, add a little more olive oil or lemon juice until desired consistency is reached.
