Beetroot Hummus Made With Roasted Beetroot

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 decided 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.
