Hummus 3 ways

 
I love to make things from scratch but another thing I love is saving money - I sound very cheap now don't I. The thing is if I save money on hummus I can spend it on things I can't make like shoes. I love hummus it is was one of my favourite snacks and it is healthy too. 

you will need;

1x400g tin of chickpeas
olive oil
salt and pepper 
2 tbsp thaini
8 shallots
2 tsp light brown sugar
2 tsp pesto
2 cloves garlic roasted

method;

  1. Put the chickpeas and thaini into a food processor with the seasoning. As the processor is running slowly pour in olive oil. The amount needed will vary depending on the consistency you prefer for your hummus, I don't like mine too runny. You will need to stop the processor every so often and push the rest of the peas down from the sides.
  2. Now it is time for the variations. Take out a third and that is your plain hummus.
  3. The next third squeeze out the roasted garlic and mix through and top with the pesto
  4. Now for the final third. Slowly caramelise the shallots and sugar. then pop into the processor with the final third of the hummus and run again until smooth.
You are done you have a trio of lovely hummus, my favourite is with warm pitta. You can try a wealth of variations, why not try it with avocado!
