Recipe – My basic hummus
400 grams chickpeas (soak overnight and cook until tender)
1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 cup water
3 clove garlic
1 tbsp tahini paste
2 tbsp brown rice vinegar
2 tbsp cumin
Salt to season
Add everything to a food-processor and run until smoothly pureed, then season with salt. Garnish with sichuan chili oil and pea sprouts (or use the the sprout you prefer)
Hummus is great as a snack for toddlers. We serve it with cucumber sticks, snap peas, peppers and zucchini all cut in sticks. Will add carrots and celery later on as well but for my 17 months it’s still to difficult to chew.
If your baby or child has a sesame allergy you can leave out the tahini paste or substitute it with almond butter if there is no nut allergies.
