  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • ½ -1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp roasted unsalted peanuts

Tip

Spread or dip

This houmous is perfect for spreading on crisp apple slices and celery or carrot sticks. Add extra liquid if you want a dipping consistency to serve with softer vegetables, such as chicory leaves, sugar snap peas and cucumber.

Method

  1. Drain the chickpeas, reserving the liquid. Tip three-quarters of the chickpeas into a food processor and add the lemon zest and juice, tahini, paprika, peanuts and oil with 3 tbsp chickpea liquid. Blitz in a food processor until smooth, then stir in the reserved chickpeas. Serve with the fruit and veg sticks.
