Beet Hummus Dip

A rainbow on a plate! Load up on colorful veggies and produce with this delicious beet hummus dip and crudités.

I love beetroot and the many delicious ways to use it. Like in this Vegan Beetroot, Pumpkin and Walnut Bread or this Beetroot Smoothie Bowl. Here in South Africa we grew up with our grans that used to preserve bottles full of pickled beets during the harvest season. It was almost ALWAYS present in some form on our Sunday table. Not only does it deliver a sweet, earthy flavour; beets are also low in calories, full of nutrients and fibre.

This beetroot hummus is really flavoursome and is great as a condiment with your daily roasted veggies or sandwiches. I just simply love it with good old fresh veggie sticks and I included carrots, cucumber,sweet peppers, baby corn, celery and sugar snap peas on my crudité plate. The perfect way to get the family snacking.
