The trick to adding any ingredient to a classic recipe I feel is balance. In this case, the more beetroot you add, the deeper the colour gets. I have added just a small piece of roasted Beetroot so that we have a stunning baby pink colour without compromising on the taste. The aim is always to have the most flavourful food that looks great as well!

Beautiful looking stuff so am sure it will taste superb also. Wanted to know if I can make a paste of seasame seeds at home directly for the tahina or do I need to buy it?
Thank you Anuradha. Although you can make tahina at home with Sesame seeds, I strongly recommend that you buy a jar or store bought Tahina if you are looking for a silky smooth Hummus.
Amazing looking Hummus. I love and prepare hummus all the time, always make tahini at home also, but never thought of this new touch. will definitely try!
Thank you Manju. Hope you enjoy it. Keep me posted.
Thank you for the recipie. I made this hummus today. It turned out fine and the flavour developed over time. Trying to increase the garlic flavour, I added a little extra. I will watch out for it next time.
Happy to hear that. Enjoy
So beautiful! Wouldnt eat it only seeing such preety dish!
Im sure it tastes amazing as well..
Thank you soo much. So incredibly kind 💗
What is aquafaba?
Boiled Chickpeas water.
Could you please tell me if aquafaba is the boiled chickpea water? Because, i too made beetroot hummus but didn’t aaded the chickpea water in it. So just wanted to make sure, where m going wrong. Thanks so much!
Hi Rashi, yes please add boiled and cooled Chick Pea water. It makes the Hummus creamy.
