I know that lemon humous is refreshing with salad on hot days but for the cold Winter weather here is some spicy ‘comfort hummus’.
Gluten and Dairy Free
200g tin of Chickpeas (save water and a small handful of chickpeas for later)
Juice of 1 small Lime
1 teaspoon of Garlic Paste
1 teaspoon Ground Cumin (not essential)
5 tablespoons Chickpea Water
4 tablespoons Virgin Olive Oil
2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika
1 1/2 Pinches ( measuring spoon ‘pinch’) of Salt
1 Pinch of Sugar
Chuck everything into a blender and blend until you get a thick but smooth consistency. Top with a sprinkling of whole chick peas, a little smoked paprika and a last squeeze of the lime.
With bean falafel, roasted yellow peppers and tomatoes, warm pita, crackers, bread sticks or biscuits. Basically anything that’s heavy on the carbs or your version of comfort food.
Do you have your own version of hummus?
