Easy Meals - Homemade Hummus

This is a great and easy little recipe, up until this point I've never made my own hummus as I thought it would taste horrible compared to shop brought varieties.

I couldn't have been more wrong and the best bit is that this is a Slimming World friendly recipe.

All you need is a can of chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice (1tbs), cumin (to your individual preference) and a blender.

Cook the chickpeas and then whizz everything up in the blender. I added water to bind it together and some salt and pepper afterwards to taste and it was ready.

There are great variations on this such as red pepper or add paprika instead of cumin (or as well as). I've seen other recipes using natural Fromage Frais but I quite like it slightly chunkier myself.

I cut myself some carrot sticks and enjoyed this whilst the kids ate their dinners. It stopped me picking food I shouldn't.
