10 Minutes Beetroot Hummus


Hurray, Its a brand new week.. And time to share with you this amazing Beetroot Hummus after a really long time..

Last couple of days weeks have been super dooper buzy. Ever since we are back from holidays, there has been so much going on.. As a mum, I had been so much awaiting for this year to begin as both the children will be off to full time schooling and I will get the day to myself. But frankly when the school days started, I was actually quite sad and had mixed feelings that my little missy will be away from home all day as she used to keep me in good company all day long. Her non stop chatters would fill the house with chirpy noises and keep the house alive.. Toys lying all around house, painting sets scattered on the table and her battalion of 6 babies will be occupying the sofa keeping her company watching the tele.. Phew!!

But now that she is home after school hours just like her brother by late afternoon, the house stays intact all day. She doesn’t create a havoc anything like that before… There is just calmness everywhere…

She comes back from school and just wants mumma all the time.  Its two weeks at school aready, Missy is not yet settled at school and she misses her friends from nursery. She spends her after hours sobbing on and off thinking that she has to go back to the educational institution next morning.. What a phase it is..

I really find it hard to convince her and still somehow manage to send her back everyday.. luring with the  nice things she could enjoy….

Now that she returns from school, I look forward to some mess from her.. Well these are pages from a mummies diaries..

And yes, A hummus recipe for you too.. My little girl loves Pita Bread with Classic Hummus… So this post is a dedication to her.. A Reddish Pinkish Beetroot Hummus that is loaded with vibrant beetroot and works really well as dips for parties or as spreads for sandwiches..

A vibrant no cook recipe that is a great alternative to the classic Hummus. It works well as a Dip for Parties or even as a spread.

I have got a recipe for Turmeric Hummus and Avocado Hummus , just incase you would like to prepare a colorful dip spread.

  • It is difficult for us as well as them… I didn’t have much trouble with my elder one as she moved from playschool to junior school and now to upper primary… but the younger one, though she loves school, prefers having me at home and taking care of all her never-ending needs and demands. 🙂 The beetroot hummus is a lovely idea, love the addition of walnuts…

  • Hope your little one settles down soon. Its so hard for everyone either big or small to adjust to new environment having left the previous comfort zone. I am sure she will be fine in the coming weeks.

    Beetroot Hummus looks amazing and sounds a great dip for parties or to serve it for family nights

  • I wish the recipe was also in cups. I have trouble changing metric measurements. I would love to try this recipe.

  • Perfect recipe for winter love
    Still have surplus beets to use
