Ingredients
  1. 1/2 can chickpeas
  2. 1/2 packet Wild Beetroot & Onion
  3. Juice of 1 lime
  4. 1/4 bunch mint leaves, chopped
  5. 1/2 cup tahini
  6. 1/2 cup plain yoghurt
  7. Scattering of salt, to taste
Notes
  1. I made up some easy Beet and Mint Hummus today for a friends' lunch picnic. I got sent some lovely gourmet dip mixes from @spicetradingco to try and they are great! This Wild Beetroot & Onion flavour is delicious and much easier than dealing with raw beetroot! It's worth mentioning that these blends are totally gluten free and have no added salt/sugar: just great flavour to add to your dips, roasts, vegetable and pasta dishes..
  2. You can check out The Spice Trading Co to buy the selection of mixes.
  3. (BTW, this is not a sponsored post. I'm just trying them out and reviewing so stay tuned if interested!)

Ingredients
  1. 400g ‘00’ flour
  2. 1 TBS Wild Beetroot & Onion Gourmet Blend
  3. ½ tsp salt
  4. 4 large eggs
  5. 1 TBS olive oil (for a silkier dough)
Instructions
  1. In a large mixing bowl lightly whisk together the flour, Wild Beetroot & Onion seasoning and salt.
  2. Make a well in the centre and add the eggs and the olive oil. Give the liquids a little stir with a fork to break up the eggs.
  3. Using your fingertips, start blending the ingredients together. Once well mixed, form into a ball.
  4. Now it’s time to place the dough on a lightly floured work surface and start to knead. If the dough is too sticky, knead in a bit more flour. Don’t skimp on kneading as it makes a difference to the pasta texture. Kneading develops the gluten, so keep going until you have a nice silky smooth dough ball.
  5. Wrap the dough and let it rest for at least an hour.
  6. Follow your pasta machine directions to make your preferred style and shape
  7. Cooking fresh pasta takes only a few minutes in a large pot of rapidly boiling water.
Notes
  1. I like to keep it simple and not overwhelm the delicate flavour of this pasta, so tossing with a bit of quality olive oil, a grind or two of fresh black pepper and topping with soft goat cheese, such as a Persian feta, makes a magical dish!
