White Beans Beetroot Hummus with Walnuts Preview







This healthy hummus recipe is prepared with white beans, 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.

You can also prepare a bigger serving and have it for your next lunch as it’s a well-balanced meal.

In fact, hummus is a nutritious vegan dish that provides plant-based proteins and fibres thanks to the beans and it contains healthy fats thanks to the olive oil.

Moreover, using beetroots in the recipe makes this hummus a low-calorie and low GI dish and gives you a way to eat more vegetables. Beetroots are high in vitamin C and folate and help to lower blood pressure.

What's great bout hummus it's also that it's naturally dairy-free and gluten-free.

Cinnamon and cumin give this hummus a rich flavour while lemon zest adds a refreshing twist.

Unlike the classic hummus, this recipe is prepared without tahini but it’s still super creamy and delicious thanks to the blended beets.

Crunchy walnuts add a nutty flavour and are super nutritious as they provide magnesium and a plant-based source of omega-3.

Also, this easy hummus is made with no chickpeas but with white beans instead. You can use canned ones, but remember to drain and rinse them well.
