Think hummus means just chickpeas? Think again – you can make a gorgeous beetroot version
- STEP 1
Roughly chop the beetroot. Drain and rinse the chickpeas. Put these in a food processor with the garlic, coriander, lemon juice and olive oil. Blitz until fairly smooth. Taste and add freshly ground pepper, and salt if you wish.
- STEP 2
Divide the salad leaves between 6 plates. Spoon a little hummus onto each plate and scatter with a few olives. Drizzle a little oil over the leaves and sprinkle with a little black pepper, and salt, if you wish.
- STEP 3
Toast the pittas, cut into wedges and serve with the hummus.
