Energize your plate

When it comes to healthy and tasty food, beetroot hummus is a winner. It’s not just delicious but also good for you. Let’s talk about why beetroot is healthy, how hummus tastes great, and why the red color adds prana (energy) to your meal.


Health Benefits of Beetroot:

In Ayurveda, beetroot is considered to be a blood purifier. It has pitta pacifying properties due to its sweet and astringents taste.

Beetroot has good stuff like antioxidants, which help your body fight sickness. It’s also full of vitamins and minerals that keep you healthy, like folate, potassium, and vitamin C.

If you suffer from high uric acid or kidney stones, it’s best to avoid beetroot, because the vegetable is high in oxalate.


Beetroot Hummus Recipe

Beetroot hummus is a creamy dip or spread that’s tasty and easy to make. I like to make it from cooked chickpeas, tahini (which is a paste made from sesame seeds), garlic, cumin powder, olive oil and lemon juice. Below you have my recipe:



  • 250g cooked chickpeas (about 1 ½ cups)
  • 100g cooked beetroot (about 1 medium beetroot)
  •  3 tablespoons tahini
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  •  2 tablespoons lemon juice or more
  •  1-2 teaspoon cumin powder
  • ½ teaspoon salt (or to taste)
  • 2-5 tablespoons olive oil



  • Put cooked chickpeas, cooked beetroot, tahini, minced garlic, lemon juice, cumin powder, and salt in a food processor.
  • Blend until everything is smooth and creamy.
  • While blending, add olive oil until it’s the right consistency.
  • Taste it and add more salt if needed.
  • Put the beetroot hummus in a bowl and add a little extra olive oil and cumin powder on top if you like. With just a few ingredients and simple steps, you can make a healthy and tasty beetroot hummus that will make your meals more colorful and energetic.


I like to toast some delicious bread and add beetroot hummus with sliced avocado, sea salt, olive oil, letters and a bit of lemon. You can also eat beetroot hummus with veggies, pita bread, or crackers for a yummy snack.
