Ingredients

  • 380g carton chickpeas
  • zest and juice ½ lemon (use the other ½ to squeeze over the apple to stop it browning, if you like)
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • ½ -1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 2 tbsp roasted unsalted peanuts
  • 1 tsp rapeseed oil
  • 2 crisp red apples, cored and cut into slices
  • 2 carrots, cut into sticks
  • 4 celery sticks, cut into batons lengthways

Tip

Spread or dip
This houmous is perfect for spreading on crisp apple slices and celery or carrot sticks. Add extra liquid if you want a dipping consistency to serve with softer vegetables, such as chicory leaves, sugar snap peas and cucumber.

Method

  1. Drain the chickpeas, reserving the liquid. Tip three-quarters of the chickpeas into a food processor and add the lemon zest and juice, tahini, paprika, peanuts and oil with 3 tbsp chickpea liquid. Blitz in a food processor until smooth, then stir in the reserved chickpeas. Serve with the fruit and veg sticks.
