I enjoyed this hummus recipe when visiting Escape Haven's Luxe Retreat, Uluwatu, in Bali. It is perfect to snack on or enjoy as a healthy starter with gluten-free corn chips and a selection of vegetables. Arrange the hummus on a platter with this edamame dip (pictured).

Serves 6-8

3 large beetroots, roasted until soft
4 cloves garlic, chopped and cooked in 1 tsp oil to soften
4 Tbsp tahini
2 Tbsp lime juice
Salt and pepper to taste
To serve: Vegetables, corn chips and breads

1. Into a blender, place the beetroot, garlic, tahini, lime juice and blitz until smooth.

2. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
