Our Classic houmous is one of those things that we just always have in our fridge, slathered on pitta bread, drizzled on top of roasted veggies or sometimes, just sometimes just scooped out and eaten on a spoon! The humble chickpea has many health benefits that are great for everyone, but particularly kids as the iron, phosphate, calcium, magnesium, manganese, zinc, and vitamin K in chickpeas all contribute to building and maintaining bone structure and strength.
One tin of chickpeas
Squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
2 tbsp olive oil
2 good tbsp tahini
Cracked black pepper to taste
Half drain your tin of chickpeas. Tip into your food processor bowl.
Add in the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
If it is too thick, add in a little water or extra olive oil.
