When you know how you can make homemade hummus in no time at all…

Whilst we’re all huge fans of a classic hummus, this grey weather has had us craving bright, colourful foods which led us to create these four deliciously different dips.

Chickpeas – the hero ingredient in hummus – are high in fibre and protein, and contain more than ten micronutrients, making hummus a healthy and nutritious snack. Serve it with warmed pitta or crunchy veggies for dipping, this crowd-pleasing dip never fails to go down a treat.
