It has been too hot to stand near the stove for too long, and this means there is the real danger of falling back on instant meals and junk food! I realised my eating patterns were going awry and decided to make sure my fridge is stocked with some nutrition packed hummus, so I can get easy, instant meals without making it unhealthy!
1 cup black eyed peas, soaked overnight and then boiled in salted water, retain the water
1 cup fresh fenugreek or methi, blanched
3-4 cloves garlic
1-2 green chillies
50-60ml olive oil
Put the methi into a food processor, and blitz till roughly chopped. Now add the boiled beans, garlic and chilli and get a coarse paste.
Add the olive oil, and based on the consistency, you can add some of the salted water that was used to boil the beans.
Blend to get a smooth paste.
Store refrigerated in an air tight bottle.
