Hummus is a Middle Eastern dip made from chickpeas, garlic, lemon and tahini. It makes a great dip for vegetables but also tastes delicious as a spread in sandwiches. I started making my own hummus when Finn was a baby as I wanted to eliminate the salt that can be found in shop bought hummus.
Hummus will provide you and your child with protein, a number of essential vitamin and minerals and heart healthy unsaturated fat.
