Usually fluro coloured food isn’t a good sign. It’s *normally* a massive indicator that the food is processed and contains a ton of added artificial colouring and flavours. The kind of stuff that really isn’t good for the body. But this beetroot hummus is a whole other story.
The bright fluro colour of this hummus is 100% natural and comes from roasted beetroots. Adding beetroot is a delicious twist on traditional hummus and adds a subtle sweet flavour. Even if you’re a beet hater you will love this beetroot hummus because the flavour isn’t beet-y at all and instead mixes with the cumin, lemon and garlic to become one unforgettable bite.

Other than being the most gorgeous coloured looking food you’ve ever seen before, this beet hummus is a nutrition powerhouse as well as being Vegan, Gluten and Dairy Free!
- Beetroot – jam packed with antioxidants, good for your blood and can help lower blood pressure.
- Chickpeas – excellent source of plant protein, full of vitamins and minerals. Plus they are super cheap!
- Olive oil – HEART HEALTHY FATS
Every macronutrient you need can be found in this Beetroot Hummus- Protein ✔️Carbs ✔️Fat ✔️ AND ALSO A SERVING OF VEGETABLES. So eating it all at once seems like the only logical thing to do.
All that stands between you and this vibrant beet hummus is 8 ingredients (you will have most at home already like salt and pepper) and a couple of minutes! This has to be one of the quickest and easiest recipes on earth, chuck everything into the blender and blitz until creamy and smooth.
Okay, maybe not the quickest if you decided to go down the route of roasting your own beets. Roasting beetroot can take anywhere between 1-2 hours. So if you’re like me and need a beetroot hummus fix on the asap you’ve got 2 options.
- Buy precooked beets in vacuum sealed packs

My favourite ways to enjoy this hummus is on toast with some poached eggs for breakfast, with veggie sticks for dipping as an afternoon snack or on a falafel wrap for dinner. But look honestly I’m not going to judge you for eating it straight from a spoon, i’ve been there.
