A healthy snack for those with diabetes

Want to up your hummus game? Roasted beetroot makes a delicious and colourful addition to regular hummus.

When making any type of hummus, you'll get a smoother result if you peel the chickpeas first. Put the chickpeas into a large bowl of water and rub them between your hands; don't worry about trying to get every single one. Give the water a swirl and the skins will float to the surface.

Serve with crudités for a healthy snack or light meal. Once made, this will keep in the fridge for several days.

Beetroot

Beetroot is a rich source of betalain and neobetanin, nutrients that have been found to help lower glucose levels and increase insulin sensitivity.

Chickpeas

A great source of vegan and vegetarian protein, chickpeas are also full of iron and vitamin K, which are both beneficial for blood health.
