Hummous And Pitta Crisps


I love quick and healthy snacks and as the grandchildren were here for tea we decided to make something in the kitchen instead of them wandering around the house getting covered in wet paint. We didn't have any tahini so found a recipe on the internet which did not need it.


Juice of one lemon
1 can chickpeas - drained
1 can butterbeans - drained
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 garlic cloves
Good pinch cumin

Whizz all the ingredients together in a liquidizer. If too thick add more olive oil.


Pitta Crisps

Did you know pitta bread makes delicious and healthy crisps? Cut the pittas into chuncks - I cut into six and then peel them apart and get twelve from each pitta bread. Cut the whole pack up and put in a large bowl. Drizzle them with olive oil and sprinkle liberally with sea salt and black pepper. Add a teaspoon of mixed dry herbs (or paprika, cayenne, or similar) and toss so that they are lightly coated. Tip onto a baking tray. Bake in a hot oven for around ten minutes. The pack makes a tin full of lovely dipping chips.

This tin is full

Now find a pretty plate. This one came all the way from New Zealand wrapped in my pyjamas!

And here is the snack for the little fairy people who are now professionally flying planes on the Wii.


This tin is now empty!
