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.
