Drivers "Beet It" Hummus

There's nothing quite like a homemade hummus recipe, is there? Simple, healthy and undeniably versatile, this Middle Eastern delight has won hearts (and stomachs) all over the world. But today, we're taking this beloved dip to a whole new level of taste and excitement with our Driver's Beet It Hummus.

Can you imagine the regular creamy hummus interspersed with the sweet and tangy flavours of Driver's Pickled Beetroot and Red Onion? It's as impressive to look at as it is delicious, with its rich, vibrant colour hinting at the unique flavour profile waiting to be discovered.

Beyond just being a simple dip, this creative take on hummus can light up any meal, any sandwich, and indeed, any gathering. Easy to whip up yet extraordinary in taste, this is the kind of recipe that will leave your friends and family hankering for more.

Ingredients:

Steps:

  1. Drain the chickpeas, reserving some of the liquid for later.
  2. Drain the Driver's Pickled Beetroot and Red Onion, reserving the pickling juice.
  3. In a food processor, add the drained chickpeas, 3-4 pieces of Driver's Pickled Beetroot (depending on their size and your taste preference), 1 tablespoon of Driver's Pickled Red Onion, garlic, tahini, and lemon juice.
  4. Start the food processor and slowly add the olive oil until the mixture is smooth. If the hummus is too thick, you can add a little of the reserved chickpea liquid or beetroot pickling juice to thin it out.
  5. Taste and add salt and pepper as needed. If you want more of a beetroot or red onion flavour, feel free to add more.
  6. Once the hummus is to your liking, transfer it to a serving bowl. For a fancy touch, you can drizzle a little olive oil on top and garnish with more Driver's Pickled Beetroot and Red Onion, or toasted pumpkin seeds.
