    113grms chickpeas are Hexb on red day but I'm not too sure about humus as you are changing the format of chickpeas.

    I'm sure that I noticed somewhere in this months Slimming World magazine there is a recipe for houmous using dried and cooked chickpeas which is free.It caught my eye as it's one of my favourite foods and I'd love to make some if it's free. I've only had a quick flick through though at the moment. Will have a proper look tomorrow.

    on page 86 there's a recipe for Falafel's & they blend the chickpeas. So yes it would seem hummus is free as it's basically blended chickpeas.;)

    Ooops I think that was what i was thinking of and not houmous! lol. Still basically the same principle of blending them up though and they endorse it in their magazine so must be fine.

    Humous also contains tahini and olive oil (if it is a bought one)
    but you can make your own with no oil I still use the tahini as it is made from sesame seeds so contains a lot of calcuim

    I use one tin chickpeas
    one clove garlic
    juice of a lemon
    one tablesp tahini
    zest of some of the lemon
    you can also add some roasted peppers or aubergine or a handful of corriander

    put everything into a food processor and blend - if too thick add more lemon juice or water for the correct consistency

    cant remember the syns in tahini - but that amount is more than one portion

    A friend of mine makes it with a tin of chickpeas and some sweet chilli sauce - odd, but delicious. I think it was a SW recipe, but I can't remember the correct proportions - next time I see her I will ask her.

    Sorry but houmous is not a HEB on a red day although you can have 57g of RF houmous as a HEB on green or EE.

    1 red pepper, deseeded and sliced
    Fry Light
    400g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed

    I make my hummous with chick peas, lemon, garlic and quark instead of tahini. Just blend everything together and blitz.
    Just as yummy and totally free on green

    I love hummus! I make mine like this;

    1 can chickpeas
    sprinkling of garlic granules
    lemon juice
    Heaped tbsp plain yogurt
    1 scant tsp honey
    Salt & pepper

    throw everything in a bowl and blend with a handheld blender or food processor! Yum :D

    I like the idea of adding roasted red pepper to it, sounds lush
