Tzatziki & Hummus


I had some friends over the other night and decided to be healthy and have some dips and vegetables with our wine instead of just chips (aka crisps 🙂 )   It didn’t help with the hangover the next day but made us feel a bit healthier that night!



To make the Hummus

1 can of chick peas

1 clove of garlic (peeled)

Juice of 1 lemon

Olive oil 


Add the rinsed chick peas to a bowl with the garlic and the lemon juice.  Add olive oil (5 tablespoons to start with) and puree – if the mixture is too thick add more oil until you get the consistency you like.   Add salt to taste.  Cover and leave in the fridge until you want to serve it – you can drizzle with olive oil when its served – and I added chili flakes because I like spicy things.


For the Hummus

1 large tub of yogurt

half a cucumber – finely diced

chopped mint (optional)

1 or 2 cloves of garlic


Add all the ingredients and mix well – leave in the fridge until you are ready to eat – then you can drizzle with oil if you want


Because easter is coming up I served my vegetables like this but I think it just made everyone think I was mad……


Bye for now

    I grew up with Mediterranean foods and hummus is still an all-time favorite. I love all the different flavors you can add.

      Yes – I love changing it around – and can’t believe how easy it is to make yourself – why did I ever buy it? What are your favorite flavours to add?

      Yum – looks so good! Might have to go make some of that – love roasted red pepper!
