This Thermomix Roasted Beetroot Hummus is a deliciously vibrant pink dip which goes perfectly with corn chips, pita bread and veggies. You can also spread it on sandwiches or wraps to jazz them up.
This is such an easy dip to make, it's just the Classic Hummus recipe blended with fresh beetroot that's been roasted in the oven to make it soft and tender. It's not too overpowering and goes well with anything. My favourite way is to have it topped on sourdough toast with some rocket on top!
Roasting beetroot brings out the sweetness in them and takes minimal preparation. All you do is trim the ends off and wrap in tin foil. I like to place a baking tray underneath in case any juices escape and drip down. A medium-size beetroot takes about an hour to cook and you can check their progress by inserting a fork or knife. Once cooked, allow cooling completely before blending to make hummus.
You can peel the beetroot if you'd like although I don't bother as all the goodness is in the skin. Some people like to wear kitchen gloves so they don't get pink hands but it's just a personal preference.
