Read Dr. Kyla Smith's review Chewsday Review - Roasted Chic Peas

Here is my Chickpeas are packed full of fibre, protein and potassium and combined with vegetable crudités for dipping, it makes a fantastic snack or lunch box option.

You can also use hummus as a spread on sandwiches or crackers. You can use it as a salad dressing.

It really is very versatile. Tahini can be quite strong for little tastebuds so if you prefer you can increase the quantity to taste.



All You Need Is:

  • 1 can 400g cooked chickpeas [retain the liquid from the can]
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 tsp tahini
  • 1 garlic clove, crushed
  • optional: fresh herbs

All You Do Is: 

  1. Put all the ingredients except the olive oil in a blender and blitz until smooth. Drizzle in the oil a little at a time until and continue to blend until it has all combined.
  2. If the hummus is a little thick add a little of the retained chickpea liquid.
  3. Serve with vegetable crudites such as carrots, cucumber, peppers, celery and sugar snap peas. A really fun way to serve is in mini jars with crudités for dippers. Makes it a little fun for little fingers.
