I love this as a snack, I find it more filling than most snacks and it lasts longer too. I wanted something that was packed full of filling power and very low calorie, so when I found a tin of chickpeas in the cupboard it was a no-brainer for me – a perfect accompaniment for Ryvitas or my beloved Lo-Dough
I always have lemon and lime juice in my staples cupboard and I also used some smoked paprika that I picked up from the airport in Malaga last year. Not quite out of date thankfully although I will use spices past their date as long as the colour and aroma is still there!
The other main ingredient in this recipe is PB2 Peanut Butter Powder . It can be found in some supermarkets such as Morrison’s and I believe some have found it in Lidl or Aldi. I bought mine from Amazon – basically it has the fat taken out but the taste is still there. You can use any peanut butter but obviously the nutritional and syn value will vary.
To make the Peanut Butter Hummus you will need
A food processor
1 tin drained and rinsed chick peas
1 tsp smoked paprika
1 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp PB2 Powder made up according to the instructions
1 tsp chilli flakes
1 tsp sesame oil ( this enhances the flavour)
1/2 tsp dried coriander leaf
Fresh ground Himalayan pink sea salt and black pepper to taste
This is so easy – just place all the ingredients into a food processor and blitz – adjust seasoning according to taste.
