A super old but favourite hummus recipe which is dairy free. Now we all know that hummus is made of chickpeas which can make some people put put around (wasn't me!? And if you have a dog around that is a convenient scape goat) 😲... in which case we really should be avoiding them. So stay tuned for a paleo style hummus to be posted soon! But this is still a quick and easy recipe to make and kids love it with falafels or veggie sticks!
1 can of chickpeas drained and rinsed
1 fresh garlic minced
1 Tbsp Olive oil
1-2 Tbsp tahini (sesame seed paste)
Juice from 1/2 lemon
1/4-1/3 cup filtered water if needed to make the paste less sticky!
Some smoked paprika powder to garnish.
Mix all ingredients (except the smoked paprika) together with a hand held blender stick or in a food processor until smooth and creamy. Add small amounts of water if needed to make the paste less sticky. Place in a bowl and garnish with smoked paprika and a dash of olive oil and serve up as a side to a meal or with falafels.
