Hummus..two ways…


I love Hummus and I have some Ryvita with my name on it.

Syn free

1 tin chick peas , (save some of the liquid)
1 lemon, squeezed
1 Large Clove Garlic
Smoked Paprika
Garlic Powder

How to….
Blend the chickpeas and liquid first, then add lemon juice and garlic, salt and paprika. Blend again and taste, I always like more garlic and my roommate throws in some chilli powder at this stage! Enjoy!

Not so free of syn…
1 Garlic clove (sff)
1 tsp Tahini (1.5 syns/4=0.3 syns per person)

Tip the chickpeas into a sieve, wash well & remove any loose skins, allow to drain.
In a food processer, put the chickpeas, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, tahini & roasted peppers, reduce to a smooth paste.
Season to taste.
Place in an air tight container & chill until required to serve.
