Well I know I do! I love the stuff and it’s not only good for you, it’s super easy to make too.
Want to whip up a quick batch of hummus right now? Then try this:
In a food processor add a drained tin of cooked chickpeas, juice of a whole lemon, one garlic clove, a tablespoon of Tahini paste and about 100ml of olive oil and blend to a paste, add a little water or more oil if too clumpy. I’ve topped mine with some more olive oil and some Pinenuts.
High in fibre and protein, which also makes it super filling, it’s great as a snack, on toast or with crudities for lunch, or as a sauce in pitta bread with some roasted veg or chicken.
Did you know that India is the biggest producer of Chickpeas globally? Followed by Iran, Mexico and Ethiopia and is often used as the star in Mediterranean Mezes, what a delicious little legume it is!
