We are all very familiar with the usual hummus out there; yes, it’s tasty, and it’s a healthy way to dip veggies or add to a salad, but if you’re ready for something a little different, this is it.

Gloriously pink and with a nutty hemp seed topping, this dip will make you smile with its earthy beets and warm spice.

Ingredients for Hummus

Chickpeas (1 can) – This is a great base, but you could use other cooked beans.  Butter beans and cannellini beans would work well.

Cooked beets (1) – You can cook your own or buy these ready-cooked.  Tip – if you are cooking your own, bake with skins on and peel under a running tap, making this so much easier!

Tahini (1/4 cup) – You could use dark or light tahini here.  You could also substitute with sunflower seed butter for a welcome change.

Lemon (1 tbsp) – Leave at room temperature to get the most juice out of your lemon and give it a roll on the top first; that will also help.

Lemon zest (1 tsp) – Try and avoid zesting a lemon down to the white pith.  It does taste a little bitter!

Cumin (1/4 tsp) – You could ground your own cumin seeds to get the most aromatic taste here, but the ready ground version would still be great.

Salt (1 tsp) – Sea salt does provide the best nutrition and strength of flavor, but you could use regular table salt.

Black pepper (1 tsp) – freshly ground black pepper gives far more taste, so if you have your own grinder, grind away!

Olive oil (2 tbsp) – You can use either regular or extra-virgin olive oil here, but as you aren’t cooking with it, find the best quality one with a great peppery flavor, as your dip will be amazing!

Garlic (1 clove) – Any garlic can be used, or try a change and add a smoked variety; you may just be surprised.

For Serving

Olive oil (1 tbsp) – Again, choose a great quality oil that will pack in bags of taste.

Hemp seeds (1 tsp) – The shelled variety is best or use hemp hearts.  These give you a soft but nutty texture that makes the perfect topping for this dip. I

f you can’t get hold of hemp, any seeds, such as pumpkin, sunflower, and sesame, could be used.

How to Make Beetroot Hummus

Step 2. Transfer the hummus to a serving bowl or dish. Drizzle over the olive oil and top with the hemp seeds. Serve with foods of your choice!

Is Beet Hummus Good for You?

Yes, absolutely! This hummus not only tastes great, but it is also so good for you!  The chickpea base provides some fantastic energy-giving protein to the dish that will help your body recover and rebuild.

Chickpeas are also good for your digestive health and will feed your gut bacteria. Beets are full of plant phytochemicals full of antioxidants, perfect for managing free radicals in the body.

They are also full of iron, manganese, and potassium, which are vital minerals needed for nerve response and transporting oxygen around the body.

How Long Does Beetroot Hummus Last in the Fridge?

Keep this hummus in the fridge for up to 3 days. Make sure you cover tightly and give it a good stir just before serving, adding some extra hemp seed on the top again if you like.

What Can I Serve with Hummus?

Hummus is the perfect combination with fresh veggies. An easy serving would be to chop batons of carrot and cucumber and scoop up the dip into big-sized mouthfuls. 

You could also use bell pepper slices and celery as they would also make perfect ‘scoopers’!

Breadsticks are a great accompaniment to the dip, and you could serve these to friends with drinks as a wonderful social snack.
