Delicious layered Hummus: two layers of Humus paste, and a top layer of chickpea casserole

2 cups of pre-cooked chickpeas

3 garlic cloves

1 tbsp of cumin

Juice from 1 lemon

1/4 cup tahini

Blend all of the Hummus ingredients except the beetroot and water in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Add water if needed. Use half of the Hummus for the first layer. Then add the beetroot to the remaining half and blend to create the second pink layer. 

For the top layer, lightly fry the garlic in a deep frying pan, then add the red pepper and stir for 2 min. Mix in all of the other casserole ingredients except the oregano leaves and add water to almost cover the casserole. Stir, and bring to boil. Then lower the heat and simmer for 15 min, stirring occasionally. Add more water if needed. Spread the casserole over the beetroot layer and garnish with oregano leaves.
