Hummus is such a versatile dip to have in your fridge. Perfect to throw onto a nibbles platter, great to spread on a sammy, have as an afternoon snack with veggie sticks or add a dollop to spice up any salad.
Chickpeas* are a good source of protein and are packed with both soluble and insoluble fibre therefore keeping you fuller for longer.
What you will need:
1 can of chickpeas* (drained)
2 tbsp garlic infused olive oil
1/2 lemon, juiced
1 tbsp water (add more if you would like a creamier texture)
1 tbsp tahini **
Salt and pepper to taste
* Canned chickpeas are considered moderate in FODMAP, however ¼ cup of chickpeas are considered FODMAP friendly (Monash University Low FOMDAP guidelines).
**Tahini is considered high FODMAP, however 1 tbsp is considered FODMAP friendly (Monash University Low FOMDAP guidelines).
If you follow a low FODMAP diet be sure to monitor your serving size to keep your tummy happy. I usually go for 2 Tbsp.
What to do:
Blend all ingredients together and process until smooth and well blended.
Store in airtight container in the fridge.
ENJOY! S xx
