I made a variation of this dish last year but over the weekend I wanted a snack; I had a tin of chickpeas and some left over blended beetroot and this super quick protein packed snack was created!
It makes enough for half a dozen people, although it keeps for 3-5 days in the fridge
This can also be made with shop bought or left over home-made hummus. Simply tip it in the blender add your beetroot and switch on!
Beetroot’s are rich in fibre, vitamins (especially folic acid) and antioxidants. If you buy fresh beetroot you can also eat the leaves which are full of calcium and iron
1 clove of garlic
1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice
1 tables tahini – sesame seed paste
3 cooked beetroot’s (I use the ones in the vacuum packs)
pinch of salt and pepper
Blend for 20 – 30 seconds or until you get your desired texture. Add some of the chickpea water if it’s too thick
Taste and add more lemon juice or pepper if necessary
But if you can’t wait that long serve immediately with some Ryvitta or vegetable sticks
