You can’t have a great veggie plate without dip! I love a low fat cream cheese dip, spinach dip, and all of those great creamy dips but a good hummus recipe also goes great with pretty much any vegetable.
It’s also very healthy and you can cut out some of the fat along the way by using low fat plain yogurt and using less olive oil.
It’s still creamy and delicious but will keep you on track for your weight loss goals. The raw beetroot in this recipe packs a powerful amount of antioxidants and it is a fabulous colour.
1 can chick peas (garbanzo beans)
2 cloves garlic crushed
2 tbsp olive oil extra virgin
1 tbsp tahini sesame seed paste
1 tbsp lemon juice squeezed from a fresh lemon
1 tbsp Natural Plain Yoghurt low fat (omit if vegan)
1/4 tsp paprika
1/4 tsp Salt himalayan rock or sea
1 small beetroot peeled
1. Toss all of the ingredients in the food processor or in a bowl and use a stick blender.
2. Blend until smooth.
3. Sprinkle some chopped fresh coriander on top. Enjoy!
