In this recipe you’ll make a basic hummus that tastes really good as a base… But then you’ll turn ⅓ of it into a Roasted Carrot Hummus, another ⅓ into a Sweet Beet Hummus, and the final one will stay strong as our original hummus!! Yeeeeow! This is a great way to add a bit of variety during the week, or is an ideal starter for a dinner party or as part of a platter when having friends over for a couple of drinks!
