Roasted Beetroot Hummus With Cumin

Roasted Beetroot Hummus With Cumin

Homemade Hummus, nothing better with some homemade bread and maybe a few meats to go with it. This time I decided to do it a little differently and go with roasted beetroot hummus. The colour looks so vibrant and appetising.

I prefer my beetroot hummus silky smooth so I cook my tinned chick peas to ensure that they are all soft. Also the chickpeas are cooked in chicken stock to add a little more flavour.
