Hummus – currently a very popular item in shopping baskets. Much, much cheaper to make than to buy, plus there are lots of flavouring options. This was written for Meal Plan 1

This sandwich is great for lunch, packed lunch or at home. Very versatile, have a look at some other flavouring options too. My girls used to love this in their school lunch boxes, along with a Penguin, not allowed those now!

Variations

There are a great many flavouring variations, have a look here for loads of ideas for your hummus

If you have a lemon, a little fine grated zest and a spritz of juice is lovely. Garlic too is a classic addition, we just don’t have any available on this meal plan.  Or add a few very slow cooked, caramelised onions, stirred through. Or add a bit of red pepper from a jar, either chopped and left in chunks, or whizzed when you make the paste. And of course, if you have some tahini, stir a tsp through, yum. Or how about a tsp or so of Aunt Mabels Green Tomato Chutney that’s been in the cupboard for 4 years. Or dry fry 2 or 3 tsps of curry powder, or any combination of spices you have (if whole, they will need to be ground up fine) and stir them through – goodness, this is making me hungry!
