Not a tahini lover? Not a problem! We have prepared a delicious beetroot hummus recipe without tahini for you to enjoy! We made it with roasted beetroots, walnuts and a blend of tasty spices. It's a great starter dish for dipping in with crispy bread or crunchy carrot sticks.
We also prepared this hummus without chickpeas and used white cannellini beans instead. Feel free to use chickpeas if you prefer!
Hummus is the king of dips. It is naturally vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free, and our beets version makes it even more wholesome! Extra virgin olive oil adds plenty of healthy fats, and the beans bring in loads of plant-based proteins and fibres.
Moreover, using beetroots in the recipe makes this hummus a low-calorie and low GI (glycemic index) dish and gives you a way to eat more vegetables. Beetroots are high in vitamin C and folate and help to lower blood pressure.
We sprinkled in cinnamon and cumin for extra flavour and squeezed in fresh lemon juice for a refreshing twist. Crunchy walnuts add a nutty vibe to the recipe, they are rich in omega-3 fats and essential minerals like magnesium.
