We adore hummus! It fills you up, is zingy, and a great snack without spending any of your syns! This Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus reminds me a lot of our Syn Free Caramelised Red Onion Hummus recipe!
For the full list of ingredients and comprehensive instructions, please see the recipe card at the end of this post. Before you scroll, there’s important stuff in the blurb 👍
I really need to say that Mr Marks & Spencer inspired this recipe. We had the most amazing trio of their dips at a BBQ in the summer. It’s not often I rate dips from the supermarket, but these were amazing! That’s Aly & Michael who help out with this website & our Facebook Group by the way.
I even took pictures of the ingredients, so I could work on making a syn free version so I could gorge on it whilst watching Strictly. To cut a long story short, I forgot about the picture until now – so here we are!
Making this Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus is ridiculously easy. All you do is tip all the ingredients into a blender/food processor/bowl & attack with a stick blender. That is it!

We use this fantastic Kenwood stick blender – so many attachments and really worth it’s weight in gold!
I think it’s actually harder to prep the crudités (we pronounce them as crud-ites – we’re not that posh!). You can have all sorts of different vegetables to dip in this Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus.
The key to a good crudite is to cut them into a shape of a wedge. Cut your carrots, cucumber, celery length ways and on a diagonal. It really helps scoop as much hummus into your mouth as possible without it dropping.
If you’re having a party of friends over, then this Syn Free Beetroot & Mint Hummus really suits being placed in a glass with the crudités in the top. Fabulous finger food for any occasion!
We used ready cooked beetroot, but you could probably use a large pickled one. Just leave out the white wine vinegar, as you probably won’t need it.
You need a good handful of fresh mint. Above is our herb garden, which we’d be pretty lost without!
We pick the herbs through the summer, and pop any that we don’t use into Ziploc bags and pop them in the freezer for use over the summer months.
If you can’t get hold of any fresh mint you can use 3 tsp of mint sauce. Just make sure to add any additional syns, as mint sauce is not syn free!
