Beetroot Humus

I find dips incredibly useful for increasing vegetables in the diet, and they make a very  quick and easy snack for hungry kids. Humus is an easy go to food for lunch when eating a more plant based diet. Shop bought humus makes life simple, but if you get chance you can make homemade humus quite easily and you can be creative with different flavours. We are still getting beetroot in our seasonal share so we are enjoying a beetroot version this week. I made this for my launch event this time last year & it is a vibrant and tasty addition to any buffet table!! Chickpeas are a great source of fibre & vegetable protein, so can help to maintain stable blood sugar levels for long lasting energy. The fibre and low calorie content also make it a good choice for maintaining a healthy weight. Beetroot is also a rich source of fibre but also a great source of nutrients and antioxidants, with many health benefits.
