Healthy Beetroot Hummus and Baba Ganoush Recipes

We had an honour to collaborate with Tyylitoimisto and R-Collection. They organized a styling event at R-Collection showroom. The event focused on work style and wardrobe essentials. We provided healthy catering: colourful beetroot hummus on a rye button and creamy baba ganoush on a seed cracker. They are great little snacks for cocktail parties and we’d love to share the recipes with you!

Ingredients for beetroot hummus

2 cups chickpeas

3 small beetroots

2 tsp salt

juice of half of a lemon

3 tbsp tahini

2 garlic gloves

½ cup water (or less)

1/3 cup olive oil

1 tbsp ground cumin

How to make Beetroot Hummus

  1. Cut beetroots in 4 pieces. Place them in boiling water. Boil them until they’re cooked (try with a fork). Peel off the skin with your hands, it comes off easily. Let the beetroots cool off slightly.
  2. If you use canned chickpeas, wash them under running water.
  3. Add chickpeas, beetroot, salt, lemon juice, tahini, garlic, olive oil and cumin in a food processor. Mix until smooth.
  4. Add some water, depending on how thick you like it.
  5. Have a little taste, you can add some more ingredients if you like. We absolutely love tahini and usually add some extra tahini for some more flavor.
  6. Voila! Enjoy the hummus with some crackers or as a part of your meal.

1 large eggplant

¼ cup tahini

How to make Baba Ganoush

  1. Preheat the oven to 190C degrees.
  2. Cut the eggplant in slices and prick the slices with a fork in several places.
  3. Place them on a baking tray and bake them until the skin blackens and they are very soft, around 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. Remove them from the oven, let them cool slightly and cut off the skin.
  5. Once cooled off, place them in a food processor.
  6. Add tahini, then garlic, lemon juice, cumin and mix well.
