Beetroot Hummus

Does your heart BEET hummus? Ask any vegan and they’ll surely tell you that hummus is a staple in their diet. You can use it as a dip, a sauce for a wrap, a topping for your buddha bowl or a spread for your avo toast. Yet the ones sold in supermarkets often contain a whole bunch of preservatives and oils, not to mention all the plastic they come in!

To avoid these nasties, I like to whip up my own creamy hummus. And yes, this recipe isΒ  made from 100% plant based wholefoods. After making it, you honestly will never go back to the store bought versions which – in my opinion – have a taste that is by far inferior to the real deal. Plus, making your own means you can make it fancy. Hello vibrant beetroot hummus, you won’t last long in my fridge!
