Chick peas (Garbanzo beans) play a big part in the Vegan diet due to their high protein and fibre content. They lower your cholesterol and have a low glycemic index meaning they won’t spike your blood sugar levels which as we know can make you feel tired, increase your food cravings and will play havoc with your weight. There’s always a tub of homemade hummus in my fridge, such a versatile, satisfying food.
2 x tins of pre-cooked chick peas
2 teaspoons tahini
1 teaspoon cumin
2 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
juice of 2 lemons
water for desired consistency
Put all ingredients in a blender and blend adding water for desired consistency.
