    Hiya,
    I know I've already seen this information on here somewhere but I can't find it again :eek:! Could anybody let me know the syn value for hummous please, and can it be counted as a healthy extra? I'm doing green days only as I'm veggie. I had it in a pre-made sandwich from Boots today with salad and a chutney. I was hoping to have the bread as a healthy extra and syn the chutney. But I'm unsure of the hummous too, I know it's reduced fat because it's one of the new low fat/calorie shapers sandwiches.

    Thanks in advance :)

    I know tesco's reduced fat hummus is 1 1/2 sins per portion as stated on the back of the tub.

    However I found a sin free recipe online!

    Ingredients

    400 g chickpeas (drained)
    1/2 lemon, juice of
    2 minced garlic cloves
    1/2 teaspoon salt
    1 teaspoon cumin
    2 tablespoons very low-fat plain yogurt
    water, to thin down

    Directions

    1put the chickpeas, lemon juice crushed garlic cumin and yoghurt into blender and bled until slightly chunky, continue pulversising adding a little water to get to desired consistency, i like mine chunky pastey.

    Piri Piri Houmous, Reduced Fat, chilled, 1 level tbsp


    Red Pepper Houmous, Reduced Fat, chilled, 1 level tbsp 2

    Shop bought hummus is heinous in syns IMO, theres no way I could manage on 1 or 2 LEVEL tbsp :rolleyes: Youre way better off making your own Free stuff.
