This is a great healthy snack that can be eaten with vegetable sticks or pita bread! It is an easy snack that you can make and keep in the fridge. Hummus is low GI and a great source of soluble fibre and healthy fats.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes

Difficulty: Easy

Serves: 4

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup dried chickpeas
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon tahini

Method:

  1. You’ll either need to pressure cook, boil or soak and peel them to prepare the chickpeas. 
  2. Puree the chickpeas on their own in the food processor until they become powder-like.
  3. Add the remaining ingredients and process together, running the machine for 4-5 minutes until the mixture is smooth and creamy.
  4. You may need to stop the food processor from time to time to scrape down the sides. If the hummus is looking grainy, add an ice cube or two in there, which helps to smoothen out the mixture. 
  5. Taste and adjust!
  6. Serve with fresh veggie sticks or pita bread
