Home Made Houmous

Making your own houmous is a no-brainer. A tub of houmous costs at least £1 and a tin of chickpeas to make your own can cost as little as half of that. Plus it's fresh and you can flavour it however you like.

1 tin chickpeas
1 glug olive oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Pinch of nutmeg

It couldn't be easier- simply drain and rinse the chickpeas, then blend with a generous glug of olive oil and seasoning until your achieve the desired consistency.

I made houmous and roast vegetable wraps with sweet potato, butternut squash and peppers:

This would make the perfect picnic lunch. Store leftover houmous in an airtight container in the fridge, where it should keep for a couple of days.

PS When I have some more time on my hands, I want to try this butternut and harissa houmous, sounds delicious!
