Hummus makes a great snack as it’s full of protein to help fill you up, but remains a low calorie recipe. This fresh and zingy version made with lemon and coriander really mixes up your usual hummus recipe and contains all the essentials for a really great dip.
While you might think it easy to just buy hummus in a shop, it’s really quick to whizz up at home and gives you the choice to mix it up with different flavours and spices you wouldn’t be able to get in shop bought hummus. Plus, you know exactly what’s going into your choice of snack.
Tahini is a paste made from ground sesame seeds and adds an extra flavour to the hummus, while the garlic and coriander also add a hit of flavour.
Chick peas are super cheap to buy and are full of protein, fibre, magnese and folate –making this hummus dip a great choice of snack if you’re trying to be healthy and get more minerals into your diet. What’s more, this dip takes just five minutes to whip up and serves six – so it’s a great one to try if you just can’t wait for a snack!
