Recipe of the Month – Hummus
This recipe is in celebration of a study published recently, showing healthy fats do not cause weight gain. Researchers of the Predimed trial found that those on the Mediterranean diet, whose food intake was rich in olive oil and nuts, lost more weight than those on a low-fat regime.
I’ve chosen a hummus recipe after reading about the Predimed study, as it has lots of olive oil in it. I know lots of people will have hummus recipes but various members of my family have commented favorably about this one!
Adapted from a recipe in ‘Deliciously Ella’ by Ella Woodward
1 x 400g tin of chick peas, drained
4 tablespoons of olive oil
Juice of 1 lemon
1 heaped tablespoon of tahini
1 clove of garlic
1 tsp ground cumin
Salt and pepper
Simply place all of the ingredients into a food processor with 1 tablespoon of water and blend until smooth. The more powerful your food processor is, the smoother and creamier your hummus will be!
Serve with warm pitta bread and salad vegetables
