Beetroot Hummus & Spiced Potatoes

Vibrant and silky smooth beetroot hummus with spiced roasted potatoes - a delicious dish perfect for serving with other meze like this roasted aubergine & chickpeas, herby asparagus with toasted hazelnuts, Greek-style beanshomemade flatbreads or sumac salad.

Spring has well and truly sprung in the last week in the UK - the weather's warming up and we've had days of beautiful blue skies and sunshine. I love this time of year, everything is shifting and there's just a beautiful sense of change in the air, bringing hope of what's to come. I also find this is the time I want to eat fresher and more vibrant foods, starting to transition from the hearty meals that kept you warm through winter.

I used pre-cooked fresh pickled beets for this hummus - the type that are in the salad section of the supermarket, you simply blend these up with chickpeas, tahini, olive oil and some seasonings until silky smooth. For the potatoes, dice them up, toss in some oil and seasonings and roast for 25 mins at 220°C. Serve the hummus topped with the roasted potatoes, a drizzle of yogurt, toasted pine nuts and some fresh dill to bring it all together.
