Hummus is a lovely dip made from a base of chickpeas and tahini. It is a great way to increase your daily fibre intake as well as getting healthy fats and protein. You can make large batches and enjoy as a snack throughout your day and week ahead.

Chickpeas are a good source of fibre, which helps regulate blood sugar levels and lower cholesterol. They are also a good source of magnesium and folic acid. Adding cilantro to the recipe adds more health benefits as it has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.

A complaint that a lot of people have about hummus is a chalky texture. To make sure your hummus has a creamy texture vs a chalky texture, heat your chickpeas before blending. You can boil them in a pot, or if you add a half a cup of hot water while blending your chickpeas.

The recipe:

2 cans of chickpeas

1/2 cup of hot water

1 cup of tahinni

2 garlic cloves chopped

1/2 cup of lime juice

1 large handful of cilantro

Optional: 1/2 cup pumpkin seeds

Place all ingredients in either a food processor or a blender. Blend until smooth. If you feel like the mixture is too thick, add a tablespoon of water at a time until you reach your desired consistency.

Serve with fresh cut veggies, bread or crackers and enjoy!
