Home-made Hommus - Fresh and Yum

Homemade hommus! It is so easy and minus the mystery oils, preservatives, thickeners and additives in the store-bought versions. While not all are bad for you - some are prohibited in infant food so why would adults want to eat them?

Make your own in 15 mins. ​ You need: - a food processor​ - 400 gram chickpea can drained​ - 3 tab tahini​ - 1 tab olive oil​ - 1 lemon or lime squeezed​ - 1 - 2 cloves of garlic crushed (optional)​ Process all ingredients until smooth. If dry, add a tiny splash of filtered water to make it creamy. ​ Add a pinch of:​ - cumin, turmeric, sea salt, cayenne pepper​

Why hommus? High protein, essential fatty acids, fibre, vitamin c. Eat with carrot sticks and cucumer slices to widen your nutrient pool further for the ideal snack.

Store in a glass jar in the fridge.​ Always remember that food is medicine, not just fuel.
