350g raw beetroot (approx 3 medium beetroot)
4 cloves of garlic
1 tablespoon soft goats cheese/natural yoghurt
1 tin of chickpeas
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons oil
Salt and pepper

Instructions

1. Prep your ingredients:

  • Smash the garlic cloves with the back of a knife and leave whole with the skin on
  • Drain the tin of chickpeas
