Pink Valentine Hummus

Well isn’t this pretty? Just in time for Valentines Day a beautiful appetizer for a delicious meal to share with your love.

Roasted beets give this hummus it’s pretty pink colour and power up the nutrition, as beets are packed with the red colouring anthocyins a  powerful group of antioxidants and are also very cleansing and supportive to the liver.

Chickpeas are protein rich and full of fibre which supports the function of the digestive tract. The combination of fibre and protein together is also the perfect blend for managing blood sugar levels in the body making this a healthful snack that will not spike insulin in the bloodstream.
