Beetroot/Pink Hummus

Posted by

How important is color in your life? Well, I can’t talk much about clothes and accessories when it comes to colors, but I do know that eating colorful food ensures a healthy diet. I am an Indian and colors have an enormous significance in our lives. We even have a festival of colors ‘Holi’. Different colors symbolize different things in cultures around the world, and these associations can vary greatly.

For me, my food is my canvas, and I love adding my tweaks to it. Sometimes it leaves me surprised and at times disappointed.

One of my favorite dip that I love to experiment with is Hummus.
Hummus is like the blank canvas, and you can add a magic ingredient to create a new avatar. Every time I would add something new to alter the taste, keeping the essence of hummus as such.

Adding roasted or cooked beet lends texture, gorgeous color, and a subtle taste. In this recipe, I also added some feta cheese to get some creaminess.
In the absence of feta, you could use hung curd (say 11/2 tbsp) and adjust the salt.
I use this dip as such or spread it over the sliders, sandwiches and even over my naan pizza.

Hope you like it.
