    Roughly chop the beetroot and herbs and put in a food processor with the walnuts and garlic and process until you have a course paste.

  • 3.

    Add the oil and vinegar and season generously with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Taste to check the seasoning – you may need to add a little more vinegar if the beetroot are particularly sweet. Set aside for the flavours to mingle while you make the pitta crisps.
