    Gah. Went to doctor's without having had any food so was starving when I got back. Had a giant bowl of salad, a bowl of spicy hummus made of a whole tin of chickpeas with 3 giant mega-carrots, an apple, 2 satsumas, a big box of mixed berries, a Muller light with chocolate, and a coffee. I haven't had a single syn. I am Stuffed. As. A. Stuffed Thing.

    I never thought you could get full on healthy stuff. I think I just ate it all too fast.

    OK, here's the recipe:


    Hummus recipe: (FREE on green/EE)

    1 tin chickpeas, drained (keep the juice)
    1-2 cloves garlic, roughly chopped
    2 tbsp lemon juice (about half a lemon)
    1 tsp ground cumin
    about 10 medium jalapeno slices (I like mine quite hot, you might want less than this)
    Plenty of salt & freshly ground pepper

    Stick the chickpeas, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and jalapenos in a food processor. Add 1 tbsp of the juice from the jalapeno jar and about 4tbsp of the juice from the chickpeas and whizz to desired consistency.

    You will need to adjust the amount of chickpea juice to suit how thick/runny you like your hummus.

    I like Discovery jalapenos better than Old El Paso - they're smaller but tastier. Also their red jalapenos are lovely and make it really colourful.

    Homemade pitta chips hun. I just use pitta HEb, cut it into about 8 triangles, brush with crushed garlic clove mixed with fry light, add black pepper and a bit of salt, use a baking sheet, pop in the oven for about 7 -10 min, gas mark 5 and voilĂ ! I am guessing using your HEb allowance this should be about 0 syns :D. Otherwise syn pitta at 7 I think.
