When I think of a deliciously luxurious creamy dip I look no further than a freshly made authentic simple smooth hummus! if you have a high speed blender (with a tamper, like a Vitamix) you will achieve an incredibly smooth middle eastern style hummus, which I personally prefer. If you don’t, no worries you can peel the skins off your chickpeas (garbanzo), however I find this too laborious, or just enjoy a more rustic hummus!
If you have time to soak your chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) overnight, then that’s great, or if you’re in a pinch for time (this happens to me often!) opt for the organic ones in a can, but make sure you rinse them several times with filtered water before using. Home made fresh hummus is loaded with protein, iron, fibre and helps to lower blood sugar plus they are super rich in folate, which is exactly what you want in your diet if you are growing a baby!
I love scooping mine up with chopped up veg crudités, vegan gluten free store bought chips (read your labels), or herbed almond flour crunchy torillas brushed with coconut oil and sprinkled generously with dried herbs then baked (pictured here,) or finally with my deelish coconut chapati warmed straight off the pan and sliced is just divine!
