This bright and tasty Beetroot Houmous is quick & easy to make.
At just 2 SmartPoints on Weight Watchers Blue and Purple plans for 2 large heaped tablespoon portion, it makes a great healthy and filling lunch if served with crudités or toasted flat bread.
If you follow the WW Green plan 2 large tablespoons on the houmous / hummus works out at 3 SmartPoints.
How great is the colour of this beetroot houmous?
Don't let that colour deceive you though! This houmous (or hummus) actually has a slight kick.
The addition of garlic and ground cumin change it from a pretty pink dip into a very tasty low SP accompaniment to many different dishes.
It was really simple to make - I didn't even need to roast the beetroot first. I made it using a packet of ready cooked beetroot (not in vinegar) and blitzed it in a blender with the rest of the ingredients. It took less than 10 minutes to make, how quick and easy is that!
This beetroot houmous is really versatile. I eat it with a toasted pitta bread for a quick 6 SP lunch or added to a chicken and lettuce tortilla wrap for a filling 6 SP lunch.
Yesterday, I ate two huge spoonfuls of it with chopped veg for a 2 SP snack.
