Instructions

Crust

  • Preheat oven to 200 °C. Line a baking sheet with non-stick baking paper and lightly grease it with olive oil.
  • For the flax eggs: mix 2 tablespoons ground flaxseed + 5 tablespoons water, stir and let it sit for 5-10 minutes.
  • Place cooked black beans into the blender. Add chopped beet, garlic, flax eggs, baking powder, sesame seeds, 2-3 tablespoons water, salt, and garlic powder. Blend on high speed until it all starts to come together. Adjust salt and spices.
  • Now add psyllium and blend for another 10 – 15 seconds. One note on psyllium: Adjust all seasonings and spices before adding psyllium because once you add it, the mixture starts to get really thick really fast.
  • Use a spoon or your hands to shape the crust into your desired size.
  • Bake for approx. 30 minutes until crispy. Let the crust cool a bit.

Purple hummus

  • Put all ingredients in a high-speed blender and process until the mixture is smooth and creamy. 

Toppings

  • Spread the hummus on top of the black bean crust.
  • Top it with roasted blue potatoes, mushrooms, chickpeas, sweetcorn, basil, parsley, red cabbage, sesame seeds, pumpkin seeds…
