    Apparently you can make hummous! I don't know how though - would love a free recipe if anyone has one?

    If making it as above, you'd have to syn the olive oil, or class it as a HEb.

    I made bhajis with them last night.

    1 medium onion
    1 medium sized potatoe- boiled
    can of chick peas- drained
    1 beaten egg
    1/2 tsp baking powder
    2 tsp bombay mix spice (i used the packet bombay potato mix for this)
    1 tsp dried mixed herbs
    salt and pepper

    Fry the onion off in a pan with fry light until tender (approx 5 mins)
    Put in bowl and add the chick peas, boiled potato and mash together.
    Stir in remaining ingredients and form into small balls and put on baking tray. (Should make 20 balls)

    Gas mark 7/220 degrees for 15-20 mins until golden brown (i like mine crispy so left in a bit longer)

    This is compeltely free on a green day!

    I got this recipe out of the100 green recipes book :)

    they make nice burgers too. Just whizz them up with an egg, chilli, bit of chopped onion and any herb you have to hand. Chill for a while in the fridge then cook in fry light.
