Hummus is a dip that most kids like which is lucky because it's a nutritious food full of legumes and seeds while the homemade crackers are easy peasy to make.

Ingredients:

  • 200 g canned chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup tahini
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 2 garlic clove (crushed)
  • 1 lemon (small, juiced)
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin

Crackers

  • 4 sheet lavash bread
  • 4 tsp olive oil

Method:

Place all hummus ingredients into a tall container and using a stick blender, whizz until a smooth consistency.

Transfer to a serving dish or keep in an airtight container in the fridge for up to five days.

To make crackers: Preheat oven to 180°C (160°C fan-forced). Slice lavash bread or wrap bread into triangle shapes.

Transfer to a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and lightly season with salt, making sure each triangle of bead is well covered. Spread out onto a lined baking tray and bake for 10 minutes, then remove, turn and bake for a further 10 minutes.

Cool before serving.
