The Perfect Spicy Houmous



Hello Everyone! You Might have seen this post about my plans to change my eating habits and jump on the healthy train. I will never diet or be strict with the food I eat so instead I'm trying to make nutritious meals using fresh and all natural ingredients. One of my favourite healthy foods has always been houmous, so I decided recently to make my own. And also I like spicy things so I wanted my recipe to have a real kick but don't worry if that isn't your thing because you can actually just leave out the chilli and spices from the ingredients list and have yourself some classic houmous instead!

Ingredients:

1 tin of chickpeas
Juice of 1 lemons
3 dessert spoons tahini (sold in Holland and Barrett and most health stores)
2 garlic cloves chopped
5 tablespoons olive oil
Teaspoon paprika
1/2 teaspoon chilli powder
Chopped chilli and coriander to garnish
Salt and pepper to taste

To make this all you have to do is throw the inredients in the food processor and blend until the mixture becomes smooth and creamy. It is so super simple! Garnish with some leaves of your choice and chilli and add salt and pepper! I normally chop some raw carrot for mines along with some wholemeal pitta bread, which I cut into strips and toast under the grill for a few seconds! Its honestly the most delicious snack and packed full of amazing natural ingredients!

My cooking right now is a complete work in progress but I'm hoping to get better as time goes on and really start to create some wonderful tasting meals and snacks. I'd love to get some recipes up on my blog as I go along as I personally love foodie blogs or even lifestyle/fashion/beauty with some recipes thrown in.

Are you a houmous fan? Let me know if you'd like to see more recipes on here!

  3. I love hummus but I don't have a food processor and it never turns out right :( this sounds perfect though, I'll make it when I go home (we have tahini and a food processor there!).
