Recipe For Beetroot Hummus

Beetroot can be used as a food colouring and this is what made my beetroot hummus such a vibrant colour. Of course, it added taste as well to the chickpeas.

Head straight on to the recipe for Beetroot Hummus ♥

The very first smart phone I owned would fall in today’s stable of android phones. After 20 months I changed to BlackBerry due to its better features. Without a doubt, the best feature of the phone was the keyboard. I was loyal to the brand for 3 generations. But last year, WhatsApp decided it would no longer support BlackBerry. I was faced with two options. The first was to migrate to an Android phone and the second was to get an iPhone. We have a UK SIM card in an android phone which I lent to a friend least year. For some reason he added plenty apps to the phone in the time he had it. While I was deleting all of the junk I noticed how many apps there are on the device, many of which cannot be deleted. As I have an iPad I deciced to rather get an iPhone.

The plus side to this is that it automatically synchs with my iPad and the apps I don’t want are easy to delete. The downside is that as things stand now, I cannot get my ring tones onto my iPhone. I have had the same ring tone for various people for years. For some odd reason my iTunes is not working properly on my PC. But I have not had the time to work out why. Change comes slowly for me and like with changing over from BlackBerry to Apple, I have also changed from making my plain hummus. The reason for this is that I am eating more of this Middle Eastern spread than before. I always roast beetroot for Dave and I for dinner. Having a few left over at the same time I was blending chickpeas led me to making this beetroot hummus.

  10. Tandy, I still haven’t tried beetroot hummus because I love regular tahini hummus so much. But I think I just need to think of it as its own thing rather than as hummus. So I’m going to just call this beetroot dip, pick up some beetroots next trip out and give it a go!
