I would like to share one of my go to dips. It’s great for lunch in a sandwich, as an appetiser with dippage (carrots, cucumber and pita bread all good!) or just as a good old snack when you are a bit peckish. It’s a good all rounder as ‘they’ say!
It takes just a few minutes to prepare and is absolutely Delish!
- One tin of chickpeas in water (drained)
- Two cloves of garlic
- Juice of one lemon
- One heaped dessert spoon of tahini
- Six dessert spoons of olive oil
- A bunch of parsley
- Salt and pepper
- This recipe couldn't be simpler. All you need is a food processor. You put all the ingredients in and whizz them up... That's it! Sometimes I add a little water if it needs to be a bit more loose. Everybody has different tastes when it comes to houmous. I like mine pretty garlicky and lemony but you can adjust all this to taste.
I would really recommend you give homemade houmous a try. It really is so simple to make and you can pimp it up how you like. I have made it before with sliced cooked beetroot instead of the parsley. It gives it an earthy taste with a lovely pinky hue.. Or you could try roasted peppers.. The world is your oyster.
