Beetroot & Seaweed Hummus

“Hummus wasn’t something we ever ate when I was growing up in Currabinny, but we grew beetroot in the garden which was scrubbed hard and then boiled, allowed to cool and then either pickled in spicy vinegar or sliced into a salad. Adding it to hummus with tiny flakes of salty dillisk and with the background heat of horseradish makes for an earthy, sweet, salty and decidedly Irish twist to this middle eastern delicacy.” – William.
