Syn-Free Hummus

I've based this recipe around another that I found online, but I've tweaked amounts here and there in order to give maximum flavour. I've also compared this to a similar syn-free recipe I found on the Slimming World website, which tells me that chickpeas, when used in this way, are still a Free food.

400g tin chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1 tsp very lazy garlic (in white wine vinegar)
1 tsp ground cumin
0.5 tsp ground coriander
0.25 tsp ground cayenne
1.5 tbsp tomato puree
0.5 tsp cinnamon (optional, I chose not to use it)
1/2 cup fat free natural yoghurt (or vegan/dairy-free alternative)
1.5 tsp lemon juice


Literally chuck all of this in a bowl and blend with a handheld blender or whizz up in a food processor. You know what hummus is supposed to look like so you'll know when it's been blended enough! Once done, stir through some salt and pepper to suit your own tastes.

Tweak recipe to your heart's content by trying different spice combinations--the base ingredients (chickpeas and yoghurt) stay the same! Enjoy with lots of your favourite Speed vegetables for a healthy, fibre- and protein-packed syn-free snack.

Keeps for up to a week in the fridge (and it gets a little spicier each day).

Yes - hummus is a syn free food when made this way because as a general rule, you will eat the hummus with crudites, so you've got your speed food in the meal.

I've used the Sw version of this recipe lots of times (it's probably in one of my random posts somewhere ) and I love it!!
The only difference is there is no cumin, cinnamon, tomato puree or coriander (I despise coriander!) and I use fresh garlic. I usually add a little salt too, but load in the paprika!!
