Pulses are rich in micronutrients and B vitamins which play a vital role in proper health and nutrition. Beets are packed with vitamins and minerals making this hummus a nutritionally dense food. This is a super simple and quick recipe and the colour because if the beets are gorgeous!


  • 1 cup boiled chickpeas
  • 1 medium size beetroot ( boiled and diced into chunks)
  • 1/2 a bowl of fresh yogurt
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • Salt to taste
  • Pepper powder
  • Water as needed


1. In a blender, add all the ingredients and give it a good shake.

2. Blend it till you get a thick paste type of consistency.

3. You can use the water from the boiled chickpeas themselves to make it even healthier.

4. Serve with a side of vegetable sticks/ pita bread.

It works as a great snack and can easily be paired with a side of vegetable( cucumber/ carrot/ celery/ broccoli) sticks/ pita bread or works wonderfully as a sandwich/ wrap filling.

  • Can add chili flakes for older kids.
  • Salt to be used after 1 year.
  • Beetroot can be replaced with blanched spinach for Spinach hummus or basil leaves for Pesto hummus or roasted red bell peppers too. All three variations taste great!

Enjoy ❤️
