Beetroot Hummus

I think I initially got the recipe for beetroot hummus from River Cottage Everyday Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstal (good book!) and have played around with it loads since, so here’s my version.

If you love beetroot you will love this beetroot hummus! Its super tasty and is really easy to make and goes really well with my buckwheat flatbreads and crunchy slaw.
As its made of store cupboard staples its also a fab standby  as it can by whipped up in minutes when dips are needed!.
