Hummus with a kick…


Owl and the hummus ingredientsEver met an owl with garlic breath? No thought not.

Well the secret apparently is to chew on some parsely but to be honest, it’s not like I am trying to woo a lady owl at the moment so I am quite happy breathing my garlic breath over the kids as they lift my head off to rummage around inside me for treats.

BM makes incredible hummus, with a real kick to it, and as I am a relatively chilled out Owl, I am sure she adds the smoked, hot paprika to give me a jolt.

Recipe as follows and it is delish! Serve with crudites, tortilla chips or pitta bread for a tasty snack or starter.

1-2 x tins of chickpeas
Biiiiiiiiiiig glug of olive oil
3 x cloves of garlic
Juice of 1 lemon
Pinch of salt and a bigger pinch of pepper
Small pinch of hot paprika

Blend all ingredients in a blender and voila – ready to eat!
