This Classic hummus is one of those things that we just always have in our fridge for when hunger strikes. Have it slathered on a 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 (mostly drained, we leave a little liquid that we add to the Hummus)
Squeeze of lemon juice
1/2 tsp Himalayan pink salt
1 1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1/8 cup of olive oil
1/4 cup of tahini
1/8 cup of water
Cracked black pepper to taste
Part drain your tin of chickpeas. Tip into your food processor bowl.
Add in the remaining ingredients and process until you reach your desired consistency.
If it is too thick, add in a little water or extra olive oil.
This will keep for up to 5 days in the fridge.
1. Add in 1 tsp curry or smoked paprika powder

How about serving up a couple of dips together for a colourful kids picnic lunch? Our smashed pea and avocado would be lovely alongside this.
