This chunkier variation of a classic houmous is full of flavour from the carrot, herbs and spices. Lemon juice adds a citrusy zing.

Calorie controlled cooking spray

1 spray(s)

Root Ginger

½ inch slice(s), peeled and grated

Garlic

Instructions

  1. Bring a small pan of water to the boil, add the carrot and cook for 6-8 minutes or until soft. Drain and set aside.
  2. Mist a pan with cooking spray, put over a medium heat, add the ginger and garlic and cook for 2 minutes, then add the cumin and coriander. Cook for 1 minute, then add the cooked carrot. Stir to combine then set aside to cool.
  3. Put the chickpeas in a food processor with the cooled carrot mixture, the yogurt and lemon juice. Season and blitz until fairly smooth, adding a splash of water if the mixture is too thick. Serve the dip with the crudités.

Notes

Try swapping the carrot for 200g cooked beetroot, and the ginger and spices for 1 tsp grated horseradish.
