Beetroot Hummus | Baby Friendly

Beetroot has to be my all time favourite food. I will have a couple of portions of a week, either raw in a smoothie or cooked but last month I was trying to find a way to introduce it into Hedd's diet and one afternoon while I was preparing his lunch, I decided to throw some raw beets into the blender and the rest is history. Now Hedd with happily munch on handfuls of softened chunks or in a yummy frittata. Beetroot is full to the brim with antioxidants, it works to aid the heart by reducing blood pressure and can increase the blood flow to the brain.

 1 400g tin of chickpeas
1 peeled raw beetroot (you can add more beetroot depending on taste)
 5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 small bulb of garlic (optional)
 4-6 tablespoons of water (depending on how creamy you like it)
The juice of 1/2 juicy lemon
 2 teaspoons of tahini (optional)
 1/2 teaspoon of turmeric

Pop everything in a blender and voila.
