Easy Peasy Hummus
Gluten Free | Vegan
3 reasons why I love this hummus recipe:
1. Chickpeas are a great plant-based protein, making it an excellent option for people on a vegetarian or vegan diet. They are also a prebiotic which helps feed the good bacteria in your gut.
2. The inclusion of tahini makes it nice and creamy. Tahini is also a great source of calcium. No not all calcium needs to come from dairy!
3.The dip can be eaten with 1 cup of chopped carrots or a handful of my flaxseed crackers as an afternoon snack or as a big dollop on your salad, burger patty or omelette.
400g chickpeas (1 tin, drained)
2 tablespoons tahini
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
½ lemon, juiced
Pinch salt and pepper
Drain the liquid from the chickpea tin.
Place all ingredients into the blender.
Blend until a smooth creamy texture is reached.
Store in the fridge for up to a week.
