Vegan Beetroot Hummus without Tahini Preview







Not a tahini lover? Not a problem! We have prepared a delicious beetroot hummus recipe without tahini for you to enjoy! It is prepared with roasted beetroots, walnuts and a blend of tasty spices and it’s a great starter dish for dipping in with crispy bread and carrot sticks.

We have also made this hummus without chickpeas and used white cannellini beans instead. Feel free to use chickpeas if you prefer!

Hummus is truly a fantastic dip. It is naturally vegan, dairy-free and gluten-free and our version makes it even better! Extra virgin olive oil adds plenty of healthy fats and the beans bring in lots of plant-based proteins and fibers.

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 have added in other interesting ingredients: cinnamon and cumin provide a rich flavour while lemon zest adds a refreshing twist; crunchy walnuts add a nutty flavour and are super nutritious as they provide magnesium and a plant-based source of omega-3.

If you love this kind of healthy and allergen-friendly recipes, you could be receiving two of them every week in your inbox!
