Some people grimace when I tell them about my Strawberry Hummus Recipe. But seriously it’s one of those things that you don’t realize is amazing, until you put it in your mouth. Strawberry hummus is a hit with kids because of its sweet and fruity taste not to mention its striking red colour.

So if you are planning for your kid’s party adding this dip can make the snack time more flavourful. It’s also a good way to add some extra goodness to your children’s diet without them realising it.

Not only for Kids

On the other hand, grown-ups will also love this dip because of its healthy dose of vitamins. This brings new twist to their usual snack dip and the taste really does give your tastebuds a vacation from boring old dips. This variation on the regular hummus dip will get you attention.

beetroot hummus


  • 1 can of chickpeas. Drain and rinse.
  • 2 cloves fresh garlic or 2 teaspoons of store bought minced garlic.
  • 2 Tablespoons of Tahini (Hulled. Available in the supermarket)
  • A tin of beetroot, or fresh beetroot cooked
  • The juice of 1 fresh lemon
  • 2 or 3 Tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt to taste. I use freshly ground salt as it’s rustic taste suits this dip.


Place the rinsed chickpeas and the beetroot into the blender and process until combined. Add the lemon and garlic. Process a further minute. Add the tahini slowly, and process for another minute.  Then add the salt and olive oil. Process this for another minute. If you like your beetroot hummus dip a bit thinner then add a tablespoon of water. Scrape the sides down every few minutes. Garnish with some green leaves, possibly mint.
