H U M M U SĀ 

  
Hummus is a chickpea based dip that is staple in middle-eastern cuisine and is enjoyed across the world. Packed with healthy fats, hummus is our family’s go-to snack. I have been eating hummus for as long as I can remember and it is one of those best things that is so simple to make. 

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of Chickpeas
  • 1/4 cup yogurt 
  • 1/2 cup tahini sauce 
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3-4 garlic gloves 
  • Juice of 1 lemon 
  • Olive oil for garnish 
  • Parsley for garnish 

Directions:

  • Rise the chickpeas in cold water and add it to your food processor.
  • Add the rest of your ingredients and turn on the food processor until all ingredients are well combined.
  • Garnish with olive oil, parsley and chickpeasas.
  • Serve with your favourite bread. 

Enjoy,

Zucchini Yogurt SaladĀ 

I am not a big fan of raw zucchini but I totally understand the benefits of eating raw vegetables. Zuchini is so good for you as it is an amazing source of magnesium, fibre, folate as well as vitamin C. Therefore, I decided to give my cucumber yogurt salad a twist by adding zucchini instead of cucumber and this salad was just as good (Yum!). All I did was add shredded zucchini instead of chopped cucumber and I kept all ingredients the same. For exact measurements and detailed instructions, continue reading below.  

  

 Ingredients:

  • 2 large zucchinis
  • 1 cup yogurt 
  • 2 garlic gloves
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste 
  • Parsley for garnish

Directions: 

  • In a medium bowl, shred your zucchini 
  • In a spectate bowl, add your yogurt along with mashed garlic and salt
  • Mix your yogurt until you get a creamy consistency.
  • Add your yogurt mixture to your shredded zucchini bowl.
  • Mix until all ingredients are combined
  • Garnish with chopped parsley

Enjoy!
