Pea houmous

This is the first recipe I’ve tried from the latest good food magazine. It’s suggested as an alternative lunchbox idea for kids, and as I’m trying to get panther to eat dips (and she did try a little houmous last week!) I thought I’d give it a go. Had to use hand blender as processor was being washed up, but will definitely use processor next time to get a smoother texture.

200g cooked peas (next time will just defrost them, don’t see why they have to be cooked!)
1 garlic clove, crushed
1 tbsp tahini
Squeeze lemon
1 tbsp cannellini beans from can (annoying ingredient! I used more than this but tricky to use up rest of can, not sure what they were thinking, might just use full can next time)
2 tbsp olive oil (measure carefully as has a big impact on calories/ fat)

Blitz all ingredients in a processor
Add a little water and blitz again (I didn’t see this bit)
Eat with pitta strips and veg sticks. I bought sandwich thins and really liked them

Serves 4, 133 calories and 9g fat so very healthy and easy! Hope she will start eating it!
