A braised beet hummus with crème fraîche and grilled naan bread.
To Prepare the Braised Beets:
Preheat oven to 400ºF. Take whole beets and place in deep oven pan. Submerge beets in water. Place in oven and cook until tender (approximately 30 minutes). Remove beets and peel.
To Prepare the Beet Hummus:
Cut braised beets into quarters. Add all ingredients into a blender, and blend for one minute on medium speed. Stir mixture to make sure that all ingredients are blended evenly, then blend on medium speed for one minute. Set aside.
To Prepare the Grilled Naan Bread:
Heat a grill pan on medium high. Drizzle olive oil over naan and rub it in evenly. Place oiled naan on top of the hot grill pan. Apply pressure to ensure even grilling for approximately 20 seconds per side.
Place a generous amount of beet hummus on a plate. Add a dollop of crème fraîche. Garnish with orange and lemon zest, coriander seedlings, smoked paprika and a splash of olive oil. Serve with grilled naan bread.
