Very quick and so easy to make, this roasted beetroot and lentil hummus is a great basic condiment for every day.
It’s like the white or black basic t-shirt in your closet. You can wear - pardon - eat it with anything, regardless if it’s cooked, grilled, steamed or raw.
Serve for any occasion or just have a little snack with a good slice of bread or to sparkle up a sandwich.
I have just discovered Pure Life sprouted breads. Serve on top with orange zest and it’s a completely satisfying meal.
Using baby beets makes the puree more delicate and tasty.
