Houmous

Something to snack on. In all honestly i hate tinned chickpeas but i love home made houmous, you can add your own twists such as roasted red pepper, basil, lime instead of lemon, it all works!! So good with carrot sticks and my sisters favourite way? with grapes! you heard me! Enjoy!

1 can chickpeas (I think is around 400g or so with the liquid! i will explain why )

1/2 tsp salt and black pepper (you can always add more to taste)

1/2 tsp garlic granules (you can add fresh but will only last 3 days rather than a week)

Juice of 1 small lemon

  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender or in a jug so you can use a hand blender.
  2. Blend and add more seasoning if it needs it.

Now you may ask why add the liquid of the chickpeas?

When you blend the or agitate the proteins in the chickpea water it naturally thickens like a mayonnaise! That way you don’t need to add water or olive oil!

I hope you give this a try, Love Emily x
