Hummus is one of those versatile and delicious dishes that we simply cannot get enough of. Usually eaten as a dip with flat bread or breadsticks, hummus is also great as a topping on linguettes, served canape style. For this recipe, we have added beetroot to the mix, adding a delicious pop of colour that will make your dining table look and taste amazing.
