Beetroot houmous


Beetroot houmous is not only delicious and beautiful to look at, it is also a delicious and very healthy snack.


You will need:

– 2 medium beetroots

– 250 g pureed chickpeas

– 2 tbsp tahini

– 1 tbsp lemon juice

– 1 tbsp olive oil

– 3 garlic cloves

– 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar

– 2 sprigs of fresh thyme

– 2 sprigs of fresh fennel

– 1 bay leaf

– freshly ground black pepper

– pinch of sea salt

Preheat the oven to 180°C and place a piece of baking paper on a baking tray. Peel the beetroots and cut them into quarters or eights, depending on the size.
Place the beetroot in the tray and sprinkle with a little balsamic vinegar and olive oil. Peel and crush the garlic, adding this along with the thyme, fennel and bay leaf. Season everything with a little salt and pepper.
Cover the baking tray with aluminium foil and bake the beetroot for 30 to 45 minutes in the oven. Then remove them and allow them to cool a little before taking off the aluminium foil.
Remove the thyme and bay leaf and blend everything finely with a food processor. Add the tahini, chickpeas, lemon juice and a little olive oil and mix everything to a thick puree.
Garnish the houmous with fresh chickpeas and fresh coriander.
