This delicious hummus gets gorgeous colour and earthy flavour from roasted beetroot. Enjoy it as a dip or a spread.


  • 1 large beetroot
  • 13⁄4 cup chickpeas, canned
  • zest of one lemon
  • juice of half a lemon
  • salt and black pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 tbsps tahini
  • 1⁄4 cup extra virgin olive oil


Step 1

Preheat oven to 190°C. Drizzle a bit of olive oil on the beetroot and wrap tightly in tin foil. Roast for 1 hour.

Step 2

Once the beetroot is cooled and peeled, quarter it and place it in a food processor. Blend until only small bits remain. Add remaining ingredients except for olive oil and blend until smooth. Drizzle in olive oil as the hummus is mixing.

Step 3

Taste and adjust seasoning as needed, adding more salt, lemon juice or olive oil if needed. If it’s too thick, add a bit of water. Will keep in the fridge for up to a week.
