Lemon, Beetroot Hummus Dip

I encountered this recipe on the Record website while looking for a good dip recipe to serve for Christmas. Unfortunately I didn’t end up needing it so didn’t make it until after Christmas. I found it was quite a nice dip, though it takes a little bit of forethought and preparation to ensure you have your chickpeas rehydrated. I did however feel that overall while it was nice it wasn’t a stand out. With a few modifications, adding some lemon juice and cashews it makes for a much more interesting dip and I keep coming back for more.

Dig in with some quality chips or crackers! I served it with Chipman’s kale and spirulina corn chips.
