We just love the vibrant hot pink colour beetroot adds to this hummus! Beets aren’t just fabulously pink though, they are packed with nutrients, including fibre, folate and Vitamin C. Not only that, these pink powerhouses are a great source of glutamine (essential for gut health) AND they are known to have anti-inflammatory properties. Not bad eh?
If you are a hummus fan then you have to try this recipe! Once the beetroot is roasted it will take less than 5 minutes to put together. It’s simple, healthy and it will look impressive on a party platter (when we are allowed to have parties again of course). This hummus tastes amazing in wraps or you could pair it with fresh veggies or falafel for a delicious snack.
