Beetroot Homemade Hummus
Hear me out before you run away because of the word beetroot. I know it's not the sexiest vegetable and it often has an overpowering taste BUT all that changes you roast it just right and blend with chickpeas into a lovely, creamy dip.
So if your'e a hummus lover but you're not so sure about beetroot, try this recipe! You just might be pleasantly surprised because the beetroot adds an extra layer of flavor (and nutrients) to classic hummus.
This easy hummus recipe adds something different and is perfect as a dip for veggies at work, on the side of a brunch dish or mixed in with a fresh green salad.
The best part of this beetroot hummus recipe is that it uses much less oil than classic recipes by replacing it with aquafaba (canned chickpea juice.) If you haven't learned about this lovely food hack - you're in for a treat!
