February 21, 2019

Make your hummus vibrant and a bit more nutritious too. To be honest, I am not a fan of Beetroot in general, that earthly flavor makes me feel like eating something raw. In this recipe, we bake beetroot to make it taste lot better. But if you like beetroot as it is, feel free to experiment!
