So, last week was ‘Free Food February’ at group and we were all asked to bring in some (hopefully syn free food). I was out on a date with W2B the day before so I needed something super quick to rustle up and this recipe really fit the bill. Not only is it quick to prepare, it’s all done in the food processor, so less washing up and is damn tasty too… win win! Everyone at group loved it and we’re fighting over who was going to take it home. Hummus usually has tahini and olive oil to loosen it up, whereas this just uses the water from the tin making it totally syn free on slimming world and tastes just as nice.
Makes enough for 4 people
400g Tin of chickpeas (drained, but retain the water)
2 Roasted red peppers (I used ready roasted red peppers out of jar, as long as they are in brine or vinegar and not oil)
1 tsp paprika
1 tsp ground cumin
2 garlic cloves
Salt and pepper to taste
Selection of vegetable crudités (that’s fancy talk for veggie sticks, I personally love red pepper, celery and carrot sticks, but go crazy and experiment!)
Now this is the easy bit, put all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz it all together. Slowly add the retained water until the mixture loosens up and has hummus-like consistency. Serve it with a selection of your favourite veggie sticks and pile it high knowing the whole lot is totally syn free!
