Very often people who have no idea what veganism is, assume that vegans eat only salad. Other people, who know at least something about vegan lifestyle, probably have heard that some food products vegans consume quite often, for example, hummus. But hummus with vegetable snacks or a simple toast with hummus after a while can become boring. That’s why I decided to create something more interesting. In this case – beetroot and spinach hummus rolls!
Beetroot and spinach hummus rolls are actually a super simple vegan snack. The only difference is that the classic hummus is mixed with beetroot and spinach in order to obtain a different color and flavor. And the toast is not simply a slice of bread, but it’s transformed in a tube. You might ask – why make already delicious food more difficult? Well, first, the creation of this snack is actually very easy. And second – it’s simply a way how to make your party snacks more visually appealing! If you don’t want to make the rolls, simply spread these delicious two types of hummus on a slice of bread! Or try my avocado toast with fresh radishes.
How to make beetroot and spinach hummus rolls
First, let me say that when I make hummus at home, I don’t use tahini (sesame seed paste). Originally hummus contains it, but in my opinion, it tastes great also without it. And since it’s not that easy to always find tahini in every food store, I give my preference to keeping things simple. So, for this hummus you’ll need chickpeas, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, salt, boiled beetroots and fresh spinach. You need to blend all the ingredients, except beetroots and spinach, in food processor. That’s how you make the classic hummus. Then you need to split the obtained amount of hummus in half. One part you blend together with boiled beetroots and the other one with fresh spinach. And that’s how you make two types of delicious vegan hummus!
To make the bread rolls you simply need several slices of toast bread. Cut off the crust, roll out each slice with a glass to make it flat and create a tube. Use toothpicks to help the bread keep the desired form and put the rolls in the oven for some minutes. Once the bread rolls are golden and crunchy, they’ll maintain the form without the toothpicks. And then the only thing left to do is to fill the bread rolls with beetroot hummus from one side and spinach hummus from the other. So that everyone, who tastes these beetroot and spinach hummus rolls, have the possibility to enjoy both types of hummus with one snack. By the way – if you become a professional roll filler, I suggest you to continue practicing with my vegan cannelloni recipe!
Why you should prepare these beetroot and spinach hummus rolls
Well, the answer is easy – because they are super delicious! But apart from that they are great not only as a party snack, but also as a breakfast dish for people who give preference to savory breakfast. Just instead of making the rolls, toast your slice of bread until it’s golden and crunchy and then spread on half of it the beetroot hummus and on the other half – the spinach hummus. All the ingredients of this recipe are rich in valuable nutrients and can help you improve your immune system. To serve these beetroot and spinach hummus rolls you can use ingredients that add extra nutrients to this dish. For example, serve them with fresh parsley, chives or dill. To decorate my hummus rolls, I used fresh dill, but Specky was not that supportive of this idea… Actually, he demonstrated his disapproval by trying to eat all my decorations!
