Need a healthy pregnancy snack? This beetroot hummus is full of prenatal vitamins and folates and a delicious addition to your pregnancy diet!
Apart from its nutritional benefits this hummus is very easy to make and is such a wonderful colour that’s its worth including if you’re making a selection of dips and snacks. Chick peas are a good standby to include as part of a healthy pregnancy diet as they are high in both folic acid and iron. They are also a great source of fibre, essential food for pregnant women! Beetroot is another great source of folic acid – they also contain potassium, magnesium and iron.
400gm tin of chick peas (drained)
4 beetroots peeled and cooked (buy them ready prepared, it’s much easier!)
4 cloves of garlic (crushed)
Juice of 1 lemon
90 ml of olive oil
1 dessert spoon of tahini
½ teaspoon of ground cumin (add more to taste)
Simply place all the ingredients in a blender and whizz together until smooth. If the mixture is too thick add a little water until it reaches the right consistency.
Serve with sticks of raw carrot, cucumber and celery
