I love to make my healthy organic houmous! It is super simple to make as you literally just pop everything in to a food processor or blender and whizz. The chickpeas are high in protein and fibre, helping to give you that extra boost in the day. I always serve mine with some oatcakes as it is such a tasty afternoon snack, but it also goes great with crunchy vegetables or a flatbread.

Method
  1. Drain 1 can of chickpeas (400g) with a sieve and rinse. Pour the chickpeas into the food processor.
  2. To that, add the juice of 1/2 lemon, 1 chopped garlic clove, 3 tbsp of olive oil, 1 tbsp of tahini and a sprinkling of salt.
  3. Give that a whizz for the ingredients to mix together.
  4. If you feel it is a little bit on the thick side, you can add a little water and whizz again until the correct consistency is met.
  5. That's it - so easy and simple to make! Store in a glass jar in the fridge and it should keep for about a week.
  6. For an extra bit of taste, I often add in some paprika or cumin!
