  • 2 beetroot
  • 0.5 can chickpeas
  • 0.5 garlic clove
  • lemon
  • tahini
  • salt
  • olive oil


  • Peel three beetroots (thanks @oddboxldn for this week's haul), season with salt, pepper and a trickle of olive oil, wrap in foil and roast in a 200C oven for 30 minutes until tender.
  • Blend two drained cans of chickpeas with a garlic clove, the juice of half a lemon, 2 big tablespoons of tahini, a generous pinch of salt, and a glug of your olive oil. 
  • When your beetroots are roasted, chopped into chunks then blend into a chunky paste with some olive oil. Fold through your hummus until pink. Taste and adjust the seasoning; you may need a bit more lemon and salt.
