Hummus has become wildly popular, and for good reason: it’s a healthy, hearty (vegan!) dip that’ll add a bunch of flavour and nutrients to any slice of bread or raw vegetable. Skip the store-bought version and make your very own homemade hummus with this recipe from Anouk van Ravenswaaij.
Makes: 1 tub
You will need:
- 350g chickpeas, rinsed and drained
- 30ml Healthy Oil
- 55g tahini (sesame paste)
- Juice from half a lemon
- Pinch of salt
- 2 cloves of garlic, crushed
- 5g paprika
- 75ml water
- Add all ingredients to a food processor and blitz until smooth.
Homemade hummus tastes great in a pita, spread on a crusty piece of bread, or added to your favourite buddha bowl.
You might be wondering why you should be using Healthy Oil as opposed to any other oil? Well, using Healthy Oil means you’re adding the health benefits of avocado to your dip: omegas, antioxidants, unsaturated fats (the good kind!) and vitamin E. It also means you’re helping fight food waste. That’s because Healthy Oil is pressed from ‘ugly’ avocados: those rejected from supermarkets before they ever reach the shelves.
