Fresh beetroot v/s pre-cooked beets
You would need beetroot for both: hummus and roasted veggies. This recipe calls for fresh beetroot but feel free to use pre-cooked beetroot if you have access.
- For BEETROOT HUMMUS -> I prefer roasting the beetroot to make smooth and creamy beetroot hummus. Some people have tried boiling it. You could try to use pre-cooked beets, however I remain unsure how well that would blend with the chickpeas (when you make the hummus)
- For ROASTED VEGGIES -> It seems convenient to throw in some fresh beetroot together with the other vegetables to cook in the oven. However, you could save some time peeling, if you would like to add pre-cooked beets directly to the finished roasted veggie mix and then further toss with lemon and cumin.
