Hummus is so easy to make and is a great alternative to creamy dips and cheeses.
Hummus is a protein-rich addition to salads, crackers, wraps, or sandwiches. Making your own hummus means that you know exactly what is going into it and you can alter the flavour using whatever ingredients you have at home! Swap the sundried tomatoes for roast pumpkin and kumara or beetroot for an alternate flavour.
- 1 x 400g can chickpeas
- ¼ tsp salt
- ¼ cup sundried tomatoes
- 1 clove garlic crushed/grated
- 2 Tbsp tahini
- ¼-1/2 cup water
- 2 Tbsp lemon juice
- Put all ingredients in the mortar and pestle/food processor and blend until smooth. Alter consistency with water and season as needed.
