This week, Clement and I present.... Chick Pea Hummus!
You will need:
Chickpeas (soaked overnight) or 1 can of chickpeas
pinch of parsley
salt & pepper
Steam the chickpeas till tender.
Put steamed chickpeas in a blender and blend till smooth. Add a little hot water (or chicken stock) if paste is too dense.
Add chilli flakes, lemon juice, salt and pepper to taste. (Parsely is optional, but adds another dimension to the taste)
Spoon on top of pita bread, toast and serve!
Yet another simple and nutritious recipe brought to you by our resident chef.
The hummus can be used as a substitute for whipped/mashed potatoes. It taste really great with roasted chicken.
