  • 4 medium raw beetroots (beets), scrubbed and cut into wedges
  • 1 garlic clove, skin on and cut in half
  • 1/3 cup olive oil, plus extra for drizzling
  • 4 cans (14 ounces) cooked chickpeas (garbanzo), drained
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • salt and black pepper


  • Olives, chioggia, beetroots, thyme, rosemary, unhulled white and black sesame seeds


  • Preheat oven to 425°.
  • Place beetroots in an ovenproof dish with garlic. Drizzle a little olive oil over the top and roast 30 minutes or until the beetroots have softened. Leave to cool slightly; then squeeze garlic out of its skin.
  • Put all ingredients in a blender, preferably a high-speed one, or use a stick blender. If you use a blender with a bowl you may need to do this in two batches, since this is a real mega batch. Add ¾ cup water and blend until smooth and creamy. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  • The hummus in the picture is topped with olives, thinly sliced chioggia beetroot, thyme, rosemary and unhulled white and black sesame seeds.
