DIRECTIONS:
 

  1. Preheat oven at 190 degrees (C) fan-force. Begin roasting your beetroot: cut the head and tail, cover in olive oil and wrap in foil. Roast for 45 minutes - an hour. Once done roasting let it cool in the fridge.

  3. Next add the remaining ingredients, except the oil and process until smooth.
     

  4. Add the olive oil as hummus is mixing if possible if not add it little by little until you get a desired consistency.
