Beetroot Hummus

Have you ever seen such a vibrant and fantastic natural colours?! I made this and couldn’t believe that it was all from natural food colour, it’s simply from the beetroot (it tasted pretty good too). I used this for a dip to go with a lovely falafel meal, which I shall give you the recipe for tomorrow, but it would also be great as a starter or snack with some crudites and breads or in a mega sandwich with crunchy salad. Whatever you use it for I hope you will enjoy it as much as we did.

–          2 beetroot – peeled and chopped into squared

–          20g walnuts

–          1 tsp cumin

–          1 tbsp breadcrumbs

–          1½ tsp tahini

–          1 small garlic clove

–          1 lemon, juice only

–          1 tbsp walnut oil

–          1½ tsp dry sherry

Place the beetroot in a saucepan, cover with boiling water and simmer for 30-35 minutes until tender.

Drain the beetroot and leave until cool enough to handle.

Toast the walnuts until golden brown

Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until smooth. Season to taste and add a little more lemon juice if needed.
