Hummus Dip

Chickpeas are a great source of plant protein, and when consumed they leave you feeling full and satisfied. The recipe below is a basic hummus recipe and can be easily adapted by adding whatever spices you like to change the flavour. They are also a great condiment to have with healthy Kale chips as you can see in the picture below (recipe to follow soon)!

1 tin chickpeas (BPA free)
1 garlic clove, crushed
½ teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cumin
1 lemon, juiced
¼ - ½ cup olive oil

Place all ingredients in a high speed blender. Start with a smaller quantity of oil and keep adding until you get your desired consistency.
Adjust seasoning to taste.

Note – instead of using tinned chickpeas you can pre-cook 1.5 cups of dried chickpeas that have been soaked for 8 hours.

Makes approximately 1 cup
