Houmous / Homous / Hoummos / Hummus - however you spell it, this chickpea dip is utterly delicious and packed with nutrients:
✴︎ Chickpeas are a great source of protein and rich in vitamins, minerals, fibre and iron.
✴︎ Tahini, which is made from sesame seeds, is a great source of calcium and zinc.
✴︎ Extra virgin olive oil is a brilliant healthy fat which may improve heart health and reduce inflammation!
Plus it’s ridiculously easy to make and you can experiment with all sorts of different flavours...
✴︎ Pesto and seeds (that’s what I’ve used)
✴︎ Roasted butternut squash, raisins, cumin and coriander
✴︎ Avocado & spinach
✴︎ Roasted red peppers and smoked paprika
All you do is blitz together…
✴︎ 1 x 400g tin chickpeas, drained and rinsed
✴︎ 1 tsp tahini paste
✴︎ 2 tbsp olive oil (add more during blending if needed)
✴︎ 2 tbsp water (add more during blending if needed)
✴︎ A squeeze of lemon juice
✴︎ 1-2 cloves garlic (optional)
✴︎ Salt & pepper, to taste
✴︎ Whatever additional extras you’re using
Serve with veggie sticks, although you should avoid raw carrot if it’s for young babies. They’re fine with cucumber or capsicum peppers though.
