''Can't beet a beet'' Epic beetroot hummus with homemade flat breads.
This recipe is a great little snack for any occasion.
Here is what you will need for the hummas.
2 beetroots roasted & peeled (also, you can boil them if you like) 1 tsp toasted cumin seeds 1 clove of garlic 1tbs tahini (Sesame paste) Juice of 1 lemon Salt to taste
Pre-heat your oven to 180°c
Take 2 large beetroots & place them in a roasting dish with a pinch of salt & a drizzle of olive oil. Cover them with tin foil & roast for about 1 hour or until soft.
When the beets are cooked carefully peel off the outer skin. I usually let them cool for a few minutes so I don't burn myself.
Then take all of your ready ingredients & blend all together & season to taste.
Add some mix seeds & herbs you like. I think coriander goes very well with this little dish.
