FOR THE HUMMUS:
Add the roasted beets to the bowl of the food processor and pulse until finely chopped, stopping to scrape the sides as needed
Once beets are well chopped, add the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, salt, and tahini to the food processor bowl and process until well combined, stopping to scrape the sides as needed
Last, add the olive oil to the food processor and blend until hummus is perfectly smooth
Spread hummus onto wholemeal/rye toast, drizzle with a bit of olive oil and top off with parsley. You can also add crumbled feta or sprinkle seeds (pumpkin, sunflower etc) on top for extra flavours.
