I love hummous, but it doesn’t always have to be made the same ol’ way! Yes, chickpeas are wonderful, but if you want to spice it up a bit and do something different, then whip up these three variations for something that’s yummy and, of course, healthy. Dunk any raw veggies into your hummous or spread it over a piece of wholegrain bread – I love rye! And, if you want to make it even more interesting, top with red pepper strips or black olives. You can also try spreading your hummous over a piece of grilled chicken to jazz it up.

Smoked paprika hummous

Quantity Ingredient
1 x 400g tin chickpeas, drained

Method

  1. If using chickpeas in any of these recipes, rinse them well in water first.
  2. To make any of the three variations, throw all the ingredients into a food processor and whizz until smooth. Serve with fresh, colourful crudités.

Note

  • Tahini is one of the best sources of calcium out there, and is a higher source of protein than most nuts!
