This beetroot hummus dip is a beautiful spin on a classic! Quick and easy to make, it’s a winner for the Christmas table!
Unlike last post, this one is actually going to be short and sweet, because frankly I am exhausted and yet it is only 6.45pm on a Thursday!
Today was a snow day! I never thought it would snow in Portland, but today proved that wrong!
I had a wonderful day of eating, cooking and curling up on the couch reading! It was magical! Every day should be a snow day!
I also made Christmas moscow mules and drank red wine. It was delightful and a good reminder that sometimes you just need a day to do nothing!
Yesterday I made this delicious beetroot hummus dip after getting some inspiration from Goodful!
We stuck with our regular recipe and just made a few minor adjustments!
This beetroot hummus dip is; easy to make, delicious, fresh and has just the most amazing colour! If you need to add a bit of jazz to your Christmas table, then definitely add make this!
