Syn free hummus (slimming world friendly)
Sometimes you just need something to snack on and it difficult if like me you like savoury things rather than sweet. Hummus would normally be banned on a healthy eating plan as it is very high in fat due to the olive oil and tahini used to make it. This version is very easy to make, very tasty and most importantly is syn free!
I like to serve with carrot and celery sticks so you get your superfree vegetables too.
Syn Free Hummus
2 x tins chickpeas (drained)
1 pot quark
2 cloves garlic (crushed)
salt and pepper
Place chickpeas, quark and garlic in a food processor and blitz until quite smooth. Then start to add a little salt and pepper and a squirt of lemon juice, Blitz again for a minute then taste again. Its is a very personal thing how you like the hummus whether you like it more lemony or with more pepper so its best to start adding just a little seasoning at a time. Just keep blitzing and tasting till it is how you like it. If the mixture is very thick just add a little water to make it softer.
