    I had a girly night at a friends last night..she had done a buffet..she is on the SW diet like me so she did us some carrots, celery and peppers (chopped into sticks) she bought a low fat homous dip (was lemon and something else flavour). It was delsish!! The only thing is..I have no idea how many syns would have been in it?:confused: She seemed to think there was 0.5 syns per tbs..Id really love to know as I would have it again..and again:D

    reduced fat houmous is 1.5 per tablespoon BUT the good news is you can have 57g as a HEX B on green or EE

    It's dead easy to make your own humous, whizz some chickpeas and garlic in a food processor, add a little water to loosen it and add lemon and coriander if that's your fancy!! Roasted peppers are great whizzed into it too and best of all..... it will be free on green/EE!

    I was gonna say the same as Jaylou. The version I make is

    Can of chickpeas
    small pot of fat free yoghurt
    juice of half a lemon
    cumin
    garlic
    parsley

    whiz it all in the blender, yum yum

    and if you wanted add the coriander.

    For the real authentic taste add tahini. You can get this from health food shops and it is sesame paste, so it really adds that special texture and taste of real houmous.

    2 dessertspoons are a HEX B and this is plenty for 1 can of chickpeas

    Some say yes, some say no! So if you eating blended chickpeas and your weight loss not slowing don't worry about it!
