Isn’t Humous brilliant?? I have it pretty much every day with my salad. We also have it as a snack with carrots and cucumber sticks – the kids love it. The best bit is it is so simple to make, you really don’t need to buy shop varieties that can contain ingredients that you don’t really need in your life. Plus you can really just play around with the ingredients. This quantity makes enough to portion up and freeze, so once you’ve made it you should have a supply to last you a few weeks.
Fanny's Fantastic Humous
I like to briefly cook the chickpeas in water to soften them a little (about 5 mins), but you don't have to
Simply place all your ingredients into the blender and whizz up
If the mixture is too dry add more olive oil and/or some water
Once you've got it to your desired consistency you can add whatever else you fancy to flavour - I like lemon and coriander, roasted peppers or sun dried tomatoes and pine nuts - just let your creative juices flow!!
You can portion up and freeze what you don't want to use immediately. If it's dry when you thaw it out simply add a bit more water or oil.
