Hummus contains both proteins and carbs. It is also easy to make at home and enjoy with raw vegetables or as a spread.


It makes a tasty snack and it encourages your family to dip with veggies like carrots and cucumber sticks.

You can easily create hummus variations with paprika, garlic, basil, sun-dried tomatoes, etc.

Hummus also makes a great lunch box snack and kids seem to love the taste and the fun of dipping.


  1. 1 cup of chickpeas
  2. Salt to taste
  3. Pinch of pepper
  4. 2 Tbs lemon juice
  5. 1/2 Garlic clove

  1. I like to soak overnight and then cook dried chickpeas with some garlic and salt, but I have taken a shortcut before with canned chickpeas.
  2. Crush the garlic.
  3. Blend all the ingredients together with the chickpeas in a blender.
  4. Add any other herbs and spices you like.
  5. Taste to check flavour.
