    INGREDIENTS

    1 tin chick peas , drain liquid into a cup as you will need some
    1 lemon, squeezed
    1 Large Clove Garlic
    Salt
    Smoked Paprika
    Garlic Powder
    Frylight

    METHOD

    Put chickpeas in a food processor with the garlic and a little of the chickpea liquid and whizz on high power until smooth. Add more liquid if too thick. Keep scraping the sides of the bowl down and re-whizz where needed

    Add the juice of 1 lemon, a shake of smoked paprika, salt and a shake of garlic powder.

    Whizz again

    Taste and season as you prefer using additional salt, paprika or garlic powder

    It really is down to taste.

    Then add a few sprays of Frylight and whizz again.

    Refrigerate - it tastes better- also I found it was even better the next day ;)
    Yum

    Serve with sliced red,orange and yellow peppers, cucumber and carrot batons

    Thank you! Can't wait to try this - going shopping today and will pick up the bits I need. I have been desperate for low syn snacks which are savoury rather than sweet. :eatdrink051:

    It's a winner :) I added some jalapeno for a little extra pep, and served it up with a shake of paprika on the top. Lovely.

    I think the garlic and lemon part is definitely something that should be altered to your own taste ;)

    Glad you liked it :thankyou:

    I have been looking at this recipe for months thinking would it taste as good as the reduced fat hummous that I generally buy in tesco... Just to say I made this today took half out as made by your recipe then added fresh coriander to the remaining half and whizzed again, I am amazed at how gorgeous this hummous is I LOVE it thankyou so much for sharing. I follow your food dairy and herby cheese potatoes are next on my list. You are an inspiration xxx

    I've been making my own houmous using a recipe similar to this and it's lovely.... I'm very heavy handed with the garlic sometimes though and alienate my family... Oops!

    Better than shop bought in my opinion and I sometimes make it with loads of roasted red pepper so get my 1/3 superfree!

    This is basically the same as the recipe I use from Appitite for Reduction - it's so good!

    I usual do mine without the paprika and then add jalapeño and coriander - it tastes lovely and has a real firey kick to it :)

    When I make syn free humous I blend the chickpeas with fat free natural yoghurt instead of water :) I also add half a chilli which gives it a nice kick x

    Yum, just made this! will be munching guilt free with crudites for my superfree...only problem is i have a crap food processor so had to add quite a bit of water for it to blend at all, came out chunky which is cool with me but i think i'll be investing in a proper food processor when i have some money!
