1. Prep the beetroot and cook them for approx. 35 minutes in water, then drain the water, add the garlic, cumin, ghee, smoked paprika and salt, then mash and re-heat stirring well.
2. While the beetroot is cooking; Place the chickpeas on in a roasting tin and season them with salt then place them &in a 150 degree Celsius preheated oven (in some coconut oil) for 15 minutes, giving them a shake once or twice.
3. Once your beetroot mash is ready, serve it with the lovely crunchy chickpeas sprinkled over it.
