You eat with your eyes?
I love the deeply purple hue of this beetroot hummus topped with the equally lovely multi coloured carrots? It’s a feast for the eyes as well as the belly.
Roasting veg is an easy way to enhance the flavour and transform them into the main element of a meal and I think this is particularly true of roast carrots as they are substantial and pretty filling.
This is a classic Niki recipe – a mix of component parts which come together to make something greater than its parts.
I love layering flavours and textures; robust roast carrots and beetroot, earthy nutty beetroot walnut dip, the crunchy/salty sesame sprinkles and fluffy flatbread.
And the slightly sweet dressing with date syrup compliments the earthy beetroot perfectly.
I added some tangy gerkins as a topping – this is optional but adds a great contrast.
This dish is great as a snack or main meal in my opinion. And would work perfectly as part of a mezze with extra dishes like; salads, crispy roast potatoes and more dips.
My organic box provided the gorgeous rainbow carrots and beetroot and this recipe provided a simple and delicious way to use them up.
This recipe is completely customisable; Use any roast veg and you can swap the beetroot hummus for red pepper dip or classic hummus.
I absolutely LOVE seeing your gorgeous creations on social media so keep tagging me and ill try to best to repost and share x @rebelrecipes #rebelrecipesSending all the love, Niki xxx
