We have the world's most picky-eater on our hands. She's just not that into food- much prefers hourly top ups of Mama's milk. So, when I do find a food that takes her fancy I take the opportunity to fill her up on it as much as I can. Hummus happens to be one of her favourites, which is perfect for this vegetarian lassy. Chickpeas are full of manganese, folate, protein, fiber and iron making hummus a supersnack for little ones. I am a huge fan of roasted garlic hummus or spicy roast red pepper hummus, but for her I keep it simple:
1 can of chickpeas (or 1 cup of boiled and cooled chickpeas)
juice from 1 lemon
1 1/2 tbs tahini
1 garlic clove
(water if needed for desired consistency)
Blend all ingredients into a smooth paste and use as a dip for sliced veggies or crackers or as a sandwich condiment.
How do you like your hummus?
