Yummy hummus

I’m finally back trying out recipes after a busy, busy summer. This was my first attempt at homemade hummus and I nailed it (If I do say so myself)! Hummus is super easy to make, fast (took me 10 minutes), and so versatile.

Ingredients:

1 can Eden chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
1/4 cup water
1 clove garlic
1 tbsp tahini (sesame butter)
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tbsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp cumin
1 tsp chilli powder (or to taste)
Dash of maple syrup
Salt and pepper to taste

Directions:

Place the chickpeas, water, and garlic in food processor and blend until smooth. Do the same with the tahini and olive oil. Add lemon juice and spices into the processor until you have your desired texture.
Note: for a higher protein content, add cooked quinoa into the mix.

Chickpeas are a source of protein, fibre, zinc, folate, and phosphorus.
