Preparation

For the Roasted Beetroot Hummus:

  1. Preheat the oven to 400F. Wrap each washed and dried beet in aluminum foil and roast for 1 hour.

  3. For the roasted beet hummus, combine roughly chopped beets with chickpeas, tahini paste, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, sea salt and black pepper in a food processor and blend until smooth, gradually adding the olive oil.
  4. Add more salt and/or pepper to taste.
  5. Transfer to a bowl and garnish with extra olive oil, black sesame seeds and whole chickpeas.

For the Pita Chips:

  1. Cut each pita bread in 8 triangles and place them in a large bowl. Mix olive oil with dried herbs, salt and pepper and pour over pita triangles.
  2. Coat the pita triangles with oil and arrange them in one layer on a baking pan lined with parchment paper.
  3. Bake for 5 to 7 minutes or until golden and crispy. Make sure not to burn them!
