This is a great way of spicing up your hummus into something different. To make it suitable for my Renew Reset Recharge® Programme, reduce the amount of oil to around 20ml and add a little water to make it smooth and creamy.
Harissa paste is mostly made from roasted peppers, tomato as well as cayenne pepper, chilli pepper, coriander, cumin, paprika and lemon juice.
Ingredients, serves 2
400g tin chickpeas, drained
30ml lemon juice
2 tablespoons tahini paste
1 teaspoon sweet paprika
1 level teaspoon cumin
2 tablespoons harissa paste
4 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil or 2 tablespoons oil and 2 tablespoons water for weight loss
2 cloves garlic
- Measure all the ingredients into a food processor mixing bowl and process at a medium speed until well combined.
- Serve with chopped vegetable slices or a large salad for Renew Reset Recharge® with a couple of oat cakes. Otherwise it makes a great dip, snack or accompaniment.
Alternative: If you don’t have harissa paste, add in two sundried tomatoes, some roasted peppers in olive oil and increase the paprika, chilli and cumin to intensify the flavour.
For Renew Reset Recharge® this is your protein part of your meal.
