Beetroot Hummus With Crudités

    Where there are crisps, you usually won’t have to search very hard for dips. But, instead of tortilla chips, you could put on a platter of crudités (green pepper, carrot sticks and mange tout are just some ideas to name a few) and dips. Try blitzing up your own beetroot hummus for a healthy, but delicious treat.
