Humus is a great substitute to those fatty veggie dips (check out the nutritional value here). Try it with chopped peppers, carrots, snow peas and tomatoes. Makes for a great work snack.
1 can of chickpeas (drained)
1/2 - 1 lemons (depending on taste – I prefer 1 whole lemon
3/4 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil (roughly)
1 tablespoon of water
Sprinkle of salt and pepper to taste
Dash of paprika
1/2 a garlic clove
Mix everything together w/ a handheld blender till smooth. Serve with an extra dash of olive oil and paprika.
Mix things up a bit by adding your favourite peppers to the mix – cut and clean peppers then place them in the oven for about 5mins. Once done, remove the skin and add to the above ingredients.
