Beetroot and Walnut Hummus – great for Halloween

Healthy, packed with vitamins and antioxidants and also brilliant for using at Halloween parties for a gruesome purple dip.  You will need a food processor, mini chopper or liquidiser.  Click for the YouTube version.








50g walnuts

400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

1 pack (3 or 4) cooked beetroot

1 garlic glove

juice of 1-2 lemons

1 tablespoon tahini

salt and pepper to taste

Toast the walnuts in a dry frying pan for 2-3 minutes until the aroma is released, chop the beetroot, peel the garlic clove then put everything into a food processor and process until smooth.  Taste, adjust seasoning and serve sprinkled with a few chopped walnuts, lovely with crudites or breadsticks, tastes absolutely divine.
