This easy Beetroot Hummus recipe from my new book ESSENTIAL Annabel Langbein ticks all the boxes – it’s quick, healthy, affordable, delicious and versatile.
It's great served with vegetable dippers or crackers, and perfect to take to a pot luck dinner, book club or work morning tea.
It's a handy recipe to have up your sleeve when you're cooking for vegetarian friends, and because it uses everyday ingredients that you're likely to have in your pantry already, you can whizz it up at the drop of a hat if unexpected guests drop in.
I like to smear a generous spoonful across a plate or platter then arrange a salad or roast vegetables on top, and you can even warm it through to use as a side dish with roasted or barbecued fish, chicken, lamb or beef.
In fact the folks at Huntley & Palmers liked it so much they convinced me to make this cute little video. You'll find the full recipe, and a bunch of other clever dip ideas, on their new website.
