Beetroot Hummus

My passion for experimenting with different Hummus flavours continues… this time with my beloved beetroot. I am determined to make my food as fresh as possible and avoid using tinned anything at all costs, so I roasted fresh beetroot and used soaked dried organic chickpeas overnight to make this but to make it easier its okay to use tinned chickpeas and beetroot to save time!
