Happy Friday everyone!
Friday is my favourite day because I don’t have to work which means I get to go to my lovely yoga class. It is the perfect way to start the weekend- it’s a dynamic yoga class so the practice is quite physical but still really relaxing and peaceful at the same time. I highly recommend trying yoga if you haven’t already!
Anyway so, day off = time to post hummus recipe- yay!
The recipe does taste deeelish however it is not like the typical hummus you’d buy in a supermarket. I found the recipe here:
But adapted it slightly
What you will need:
3 large red peppers seeds removed and halved
1 red chilli, seeds removed and halved
1 tsp olive oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
1/2 tsp ground coriander
1 tsp ground cumin
1 x 400g/14oz can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 garlic cloves, crushed
Juice of ½ a lemon
1 tbsp pomegranate molasses (optional)
½ tsp sea salt
black pepper, to taste
Small sprig of fresh coriander
Dash of paprika
1 tsp of chilli flakes
Whack the grill on its hottest setting and line a baking tray with foil
Cut the peppers and chilli in half lengthways and place them, cut side down, on the lined tray.
Grill the peppers for 10-15 minutes or until the skins are black all over. Put the peppers to a bowl and cover with cling film. Leave to cool for 10 mins
Meanwhile heat the olive oil in a small frying pan. Add the chopped onion and fry over a medium heat until softened, stirring occasionally. Stir in the ground coriander and ground cumin, then leave to cool .
Peel off the skins of the peppers.
Pop all the ingredients in a food processor (except the topping ingredients) and whizz up until the mixture is as smooth as possible.
Spoon the dip into a bowl and sprinkle with the paprika, chilli flakes and coriander. Eat it with whatever you fancy- I like cucumber , carrots and homemade potato wedges.
Keep it in the fridge- it will last for about 3 days
There are lots of different types of hummus you can make: pesto, jalapeno, chilli etc… coment below if you’d like to see any other hummus recipes.
Hummus is a great little snack to eat and keep hunger at bay. It’s also healthy and great to have with raw veggies.
