QUICK AND EASY BEETROOT HUMMUS

Hey guys hope you are having a fab week, if you did not read last week's Favour filled February post what are you waiting for? It is absolutely worth it!

Recently the blog has been getting quite foodie woodie, my apologies for that if you are not a foodie. Food experiments are currently trending in my kitchen, I am enjoying it and so are all the people sharing the recipes; I appreciate your support.

So earlier this week I sent Le Hüsband to the shops to buy some beetroot, I asked for some raw beetroots with dirt on them as I needed them for my pinky-red warm breakfast smoothie bowl (veggies in smoothies are better raw). He came back with some cooked beetroot as they did not have any raw beetroot- so with my smoothie dreams over I decided to get creative with these cooked beetroots.

I remember the first time I had beetroots, my Mum was going through a juicing phase cos there was this diet 'Hallelujah Diet' where you had to eat every thing raw. Anyhoo I came home from Uni and like most Mums, my complained about me looking ill and under fed. Fair enough a diet of 2 minute noodles is anything but balanced. She decide to make me some beetroot and aloe vera juice and I drank it for peace sake as It was absolutely disgusting BUT  that was not the worst part. I went for a wee a few hours later and my urine was blood red!! I thought I was dying and bleeding to death (yeah yeah over dramatic I know) but it was scary!

I have gotten over my fear of the red root veggie and I quite enjoy it cooked as the cooking process gets rid of the tangy taste and all you are left with is a potato-ey red root vegetable.

This recipe is so easy and there are many recipes online so you can make it with what ever you have at home.
