Method

  1. Toast the bread – if the slices are quite long, halve them first.

  2. Meanwhile, tip the chickpeas into a bowl with half the beetroot, the lemon juice, garlic and oil, and blitz with a stick blender to make houmous. Spread on the toast, top with the remaining beetroot and scatter with feta, olives and mint.

I really liked this, though I'm not sure if my proportions were quite right, but it has given me indigestion. My tummy has been grumbling since lunch, and I can still taste the garlic. I've got masses left too!

I made this for lunch yesterday and having it again today. I also made the seeded soda bread which was really tasty and went well with the humous.Would have it again.

Made this for lunch today. It was okay, nothing to rave about. Will eat the second portion tomorrow but unlikely to make again. Not much for a lunch portion. Really hungry now and looking forward to my dinner!!

Very tasty. I mistakenly blended all the beetroot instead of reserve some for top but it was still delish just not quite as tasty as the blue cheese, walnut and pear version.
