Do you like hummus? I LOVE it! I can eat it with almost everything 😋. And chickpeas – the star ingredient in hummus – are really good for us. High in protein and fibre and more than ten micronutrients, including a hefty amount of the mineral copper. Hummus is a great, nutritious and easy snack to make. Here’s my fav recipe: Ingredients:
1 x 400g tin of chickpeas
1 small clove of garlic
1 tablespoon tahini
Extra virgin olive oil
Drain and tip the chickpeas into a food processor.
Peel and add the garlic, then add the tahini, a good squeeze of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of oil.
Season with a pinch of sea salt and blend to a creamy puree.
Use a spatula to scrape the hummus down the sides of the bowl, then blitz again until smooth.
Have a taste and add more lemon juice or a splash of water to loosen, if needed, then transfer to a serving bowl.
Serve with veggies, pita, flatbread or add 1-2 Tbsp in your plate. Ideal to spread on a sandwich as well.
