Steam boil washed beetroots whole in 2 cm of water until soft, approx 40 minutes
In the meantime, add all remaining ingredients into a food processor and blend until well combined and chickpeas are minced. Note if mixture is too thick or not blending, add another splash of cold water.
Once beetroots are cooked and a knife can go gently through, hold beetroots with paper towels or gloves and peel the skin off. It should peel off nice and easily if they are cooked through. Using the paper towels/gloves stops the beetroots from staining your fingers.
Cut beetroots into smaller pieces, add to the food processor and blend with the other ingredients until well blended. It doesn’t need to be completely smooth as some texture is still fine but you don’t want it lumpy
Taste for seasoning and adjust if needed
Garnish with some parsley, sesame seeds and a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Serve with pita chips or veggies and enjoy!
