Beetroot Hummus

This beetroot hummus is so full of flavour, it’s hard to not keep going back for more. This dip is perfect for snacking with carrot and celery sticks, on a cheese board and even spread on sandwiches and burgers.

You can roast fresh beetroot to use in this recipe, but I like to take the easy option and use the already roasted and peeled beetroot that comes in those vacuum sealed packets. It makes this dip so quick and easy to put together.
