Green Paprika Hommus

Green Paprika Hommus

I have a complete obsession with chickpeas at the moment… not only are they extremely versatile and tasty but are full of nutritional goodness.

This little pea is full of soluble and insoluble fibre, high in protein, full of manganese for energy production, full of iron, and stabilizes your blood sugar levels due to its low glycemic index.

This recipe is a new favorite of mine and I ate the tub in about a day.

2 cups of soaked chickpeas
5 tbsp of sesame or olive oil
4-6 tbsp of water
around 10 basil leaves
the juice of 1 and ½ lemons
2 tsp of paprika
1 tsp of cumin
2 tbsp of tahini (add a little more if you love tahini like me)

Blend all the ingredients together and there you have it
