No Fuss Hummus 

The avocado revolution came quite late in the day to me, since I’ve discovered it I can’t get enough of it. One of my other firm favourites is hummus, which personally I think goes great with avocado.

So here’s my no fuss recipe for a great tasting hummus

Makes 6 servings


400g tin of chickpeas

1/2 clove garlic

Juice of 1 small lemon

2 tablespoons tahini paste

75ml rapeseed oil

75ml olive oil

Salt and pepper


In a bender blitz up all the ingredients adding the oil last until you get the consistency you like for your hummus.

I find the combination of oils gives a more balanced flavour, sometimes just using olive oil can make the flavour a little bitter.

On the nutritional front chickpeas are packed full of plant based protein which is great for those of you who follow a meat free diet.

It will keep covered in the fridge for a few days.

Whether you enjoy it as a snack or for a heartily lunch it will keep your body fuelled to get you through your day.
