Hummdinger Hummus.

I have had a hankering for some good Hummus for a couple of days now, One of my old time favourite go to snacks is carrot sticks dipped in my favourite middle eastern accompliment. Luckily, i happened to come across a tin of chick peas hidden away in the back of my cupboard, calling out to be made in to a tastey dip.

Healthy Hummus recipe
  • 1 tin of drained chick peas
  • 1tsp lemon juice
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 2 cloves of garlic (crushed)
  • 4 tbsp water
  • 1tsp paprika
  • 1tsp ground cumin
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1.  To soften chick peas further boil them in a pan of water for 5 minutes, take off the heat and drain.
  2. In a bowl combine all ingreadints and blitz using a hand blender.
  3. serve with a sprinkle of paprika and drizzle of olive oil!
It takes seconds to whiz up but is a very easy, lower fat and cheaper version of the supermarket variety.
I would like to try more versions like this one by Nigella using peanut butter  or perhaps play with adding different spices and additions like pesto.

Tummy full of chickpea/pretzel goodness, I'm off to the park to feed and chase the ducks with Bobbin and Mr bake and Beebz!
