uzumaki hummus bites

11 tortillas — 50 minutes

Uzumaki means 'spiral' in Japanese, it is also the name of Rekka's favorite Junji Ito story. We thought this to be a good name for these savoury beet hummus bites.

Making tortillas at home is overall easy, but making perfect circles is a challenge and comes with practice. A tortilla press is only ever necessary if you care about the shape. I've gotten good results with a simple rolling pin.

Making the tortillas black is optional, but it adds a nice contrast to the beet hummus.
