MADE: My Favourite Go-To Hummus

I am a hummus addict. I've loved it for as long as I can remember. It is, however, very difficult to make the perfect recipe with both taste and texture. BUT I've cracked it and this is the one I make at least every other week...probably more...because I eat so much of it.

There are also LOADS of health benefits to hummus. Chickpeas can help lower cholesterol and it can be used as a spread alternative to butter which helps if you're watching what you're eating. It's not only a good-for-you-carb but it's also a good source of fibre. And it's tasty...I don't know about you but if something's good for you AND tasty, well, you're onto a winner. I always think there's something comforting about making your own dips too - you know bad stuff isn't going in there!

SO, my favourite hummus - inspired by my go-to health guru, Deliciously Ella.

All you need for enough hummus to serve 4 or enough for the week (depending how quickly you eat it...)
1 tin of chickpeas
2 medium lemons, juice only
2 tsp paprika
1 large garlic clove
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
2 tbsp water
1 tbsp tahini
Himalyan Pink Salt, to taste

Equipment: a mini chopper, or similar.

1. The recipe is SO simple - basically all you need to do is drain your chickpeas add them to them to the chopper/blender. Add the rest of your ingredients and blend.

2. I usually blend mine so it's ALMOST smooth. I leave a tiny bit of texture there as I think it leaves the taste even more authentic.

Serve up with some carrot and celery sticks, with a salad, on toast..whatever. It's delicious!
