Our Beetroot and Mint Hummus is such a tasty and quick dip to make – just throw everything into a blender/food processor/bowl and attack it with a stick blender!

Inspired by Mr Marks & Spencer, we had the most amazing trio of dips from them at a barbecue in the summer and we just HAD to create our own slimming friendly version!

We love ours served with crudités (we pronounce them crud-ites – we’re not that posh!) and we think that it might actually be harder to prepare these than it is to make the dip!  Top tip: cut your carrots, cucumber, celery length ways and on a diagonal to really help them scoop up as much hummus as possible without it dropping.

We’ve used ready cooked beetroot in this Beetroot and Mint Hummus recipe, but you could probably use a large pickled one instead if you prefer. Just leave out the white wine vinegar, as you probably won’t need it.

You’ll also need a good handful of fresh mint.  If you can’t get hold of any, then you can use 3 tsp of mint sauce instead just double check the nutritional values though as these can vary.

Great recipe thank you. Just added a bit of garlic as well and used chickpeas as that’s all I have in. Got my carrots cut up ready to dip in 😉

Hello Kay
This looks lovely as usual but I cannot print any pon recipes off there is no print label so each time I print it works out at about 30 pages with all the adverts and comments. Please tell me what I am doing wrong. ☹️ Thanks

Hello, if using cooked beetroot – how much would you use – I have a 300g pack of cooked beetroot (4 small beetroots) and would balsamic vinegar work instead of white wine vinegar?

I also only have mint concentrate rather than fresh or mint sauce – any idea of quantities I’d need of this?

Thank you!

    Hi Sarah
    We used an average sized beetroot for this recipe so it would probably be 2 small ones. We haven’t tried using Balsamic for this one. You could try, but you will probably only need half the amount. The same with the mint concentrate
