As you know, I recently went vegan. I'm going to let you in on a little secret here. It's the answer to everything! My skin looks better, I feel healthier, I'm far less bloated, and I get to eat absolutely loads. Plus, it's obviously much kinder on animals and the environment, so it really has been awesome for me.
In today's post, I wanted to share with you my hummus recipe. For someone who didn't like hummus, this has changed everything. I make it up at least weekly now, and eat it with anything savoury. I personally really like it hot, with vegan pitta breads, olives, and sundried tomatoes.
This was today's lunch. I'm going away tomorrow so I'm lacking a lot of food in my house! There was no point in doing a food shop so I decided that I would just eat whatever was in the cupboards. Usually I'd put it with so many other things so I'm sorry that today it's a bit basic!
My hummus is a little bit spicy, warming and full of flavour. I like to eat it when it's freshly cooked, and at it's best.
Can of chickpeas
Ginger garlic (you can get this in a jar in the world food section at any supermarket)
A sprinkle of chilli flakes
Cracked black pepper
Firstly, cook the chickpeas in water in a saucepan until they are cooked (this will be when the skin starts to come away). Then drain the chickpea water away and then put the chickpeas in a blender. Add about half a cup of olive oil, half a cup of sesame seeds, and about a teaspoon each of ginger garlic, paprika powder, and chilli flakes. Sprinkle a little salt and pepper, and add a dash of lime juice. Blend it up to your liking, and eat while hot or cold!
Hope you guys enjoyed this post!
