Hummus 3 Ways Recipe from Eat Smart

Houmous 3 Ways Recipe from Eat Smart

I can quite proudly say that I am a self-confessed dip addict! These three hummus recipes can be enjoyed with crackers, vegetable crudités or with a salad. As I’m such a huge hummus fan I’ve created three delicious but very different flavours.

Ingredients:

Classic
1 x 400g tin chickpeas, drained
2 garlic cloves, peeled
Juice of 1 lemon
3 tbsp tahini
1 tsp ground cumin
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra to serve
Pink Himalayan salt or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Pea and Mint
300g (2 cups) peas, fresh or frozen
2 spring onions, trimmed
10 fresh mint leaves
2 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Zest and juice of ½ lemon
Pink Himalayan salt or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Pink Beetroot
1 x 400g tin chickpeas, drained
2 garlic cloves, peeled
1 beetroot, roughly chopped
Juice of 1 lemon
2 tbsp tahini
3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
Pink Himalayan salt or sea salt and freshly ground black pepper

Method:

Classic
1. Pulse the chickpeas and garlic cloves together for 1 minute in a food processor.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients along with a pinch of salt and pepper and a splash of water until smooth and whizz. Serve drizzled with extra-virgin olive oil.

Pea and Mint
1. Cook the peas in a saucepan of boiling water for about 3 minutes,
then drain.
2. Finely slice half a spring onion and set aside.
3. Add the peas to a food processor with the remaining 1½ spring onions, the mint, a splash of water, the tahini, olive oil and lemon juice.
4. Whizz to your desired consistency, I like it to be quite chunky.
5. Keep in the fridge until ready to serve, then sprinkle with the lemon zest and the sliced spring onion.

Pink Beetroot
1. Pulse the chickpeas and garlic cloves together for 1 minute in a food processor.
2. Add the rest of the ingredients with a pinch of salt and pepper and a splash of water and whizz until smooth.
