lighter beetroot hummus

We are all desperate for some colour in these final weeks of winter. Spring keeps hinting that it’s not far away and I’ve got some gorgeous pink tulips to brighten up our home. It’s that gorgeous colour that game me inspiration for this pink hummus. 

I often buy store hummus and love the lighter varieties with crudités and pitta for an easy work lunch. Homemade is so much better, so I thought I’d tinker with it to make it a bit lighter (less oil and tahini) and add some colour and seasonal earthy flavour. Enjoy, Mrs H x
