BEETROOT, MINT & CUMIN HUMMUS | simple & filling




Hummus is my healthy, filling snack of choice. It is just perfect with sliced raw veggies or spread on a wrap with salad and falafels. It is also extremely simple to make and full of good quality plant protein, calcium, fibre and healthy fats. I shouldn’t have a favourite of the three delicious flavours in the Natural Harry recipe book. But I do, and this is it:




Makes about 1 ½ cups

Prep time: 15 minutes

Cook time: 30 minutes



3 large beetroots (approx. 600g), peeled and diced

2 cloves (20g) garlic, peeled

¼ cup (60ml) fresh lemon juice

2 teaspoons lemon zest

1 can (250g) chickpeas, drained and rinsed

2 tablespoons hulled tahini

½ cup (20g) fresh mint leaves, tightly packed

1 ½ teaspoons ground cumin

½ teaspoon good quality mineral salt



fresh mint leaves (optional)

1 tablespoon almond dukkah  (see page 122)


Pre-heat oven to 200°C/392°F fan forced.

Spread beetroot on a tray lined with baking paper. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside to cool.

Place all ingredients in a blender or food processor. Pulse to combine and blend until smooth.

Sprinkle with a little dukkah and a few mint leaves to serve. Enjoy!
