Rate this recipe


  • 400g canned chick peas
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 2 medium beetroots, cooked (I baked mine for 45 minutes)
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 2 tbsp tahini
  • 5 tbsp olive oil
  • Pinch salt & pepper
  • 1 loaf of sourdough bread
  • Olive oil, to coat
  • Salt & pepper, to taste
  • 1 avocado
Prep Time


  1. Add the ingredients for the hummus to your blender and pulse until smooth

  2. Slice the bread into your desired thickness and coat in olive oil.

  3. Grill the bread in a hot griddle pan on each side until nicely toasted and sprinkle with salt & pepper.

  4. Spread the hummus on the grilled bread.

  5. Create a beautiful avocado rose, or slice it evenly and place the slices on the hummus in an attractive formation. To see how I make mine check out my video on my Youtube Channel.

  6. Serve and enjoy!

As a former chef, food has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. But it was my love of creating my own dishes and then sharing them with the world that got me to where I am today. I have a passion for creating vegan food that looks every bit as good as it tastes. Perhaps the only thing to rival my passion for cooking is my love of photography. And I'm so fortunate, as I get to combine my great passions in life every day.
