I think I initially got the recipe for beetroot hummus from River Cottage Every day–Hugh Fearnley-Whittingstall (good book!) and have experimented with it loads since, so here’s my version.

If you love beetroot, you will love this beetroot hummus! It’s super tasty and is really easy to make and goes really well with my buckwheat flatbreads and crunchy slaw.

As it’s made of store cupboard staples, it’s also a fab standby as it can by whipped up in minutes when dips are needed!
