A definite staple in my diet is hummus... I seriously don't know what I would do with do without this amazing blend of greatness as it adds essential healthy fats, protein and crabs to my diet.
Since making my own Hummus I have found it difficult to purchase store bought brands. I find that they have the balance of flavours all wrong, the constancy grainy and not to mention overpriced. The recipe below is simple and combines the common blend of hummus ingredients such as chickpeas, tahini and cumin. I also add garlic and a whole lemon to give it a strong lemony taste, that I just adore.
Something that I also love is that you can double/ triple the ingredients to make a large batch and have ready in your freezer for weeks in advance.
