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!

Making this Beetroot and 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 Beetroot and Mint Hummus.

The key to a good crudité 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 Beetroot and 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 during the rest of the year.

If you can’t get hold of any fresh mint you can use 3 tsp of mint sauce – just double check the nutritional values though as these can vary.

  1. 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!

    1. 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

  2. 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

  3. This dip was as nice as any shop bought full fat dip, so tasty and easy to make. Thank you for making this healthy eating adventure so interesting!

  4. Hi, I’m guessing this would also work with chickpeas? That’s all I have just now and this looks delicious 😋, thanks

  5. 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 😉
