Good Mood Hummus

One of our special 'Mood Food' recipes - packed with lots of brain-boosting nutrients including B Vitamins, Omegas, Amino Acids, Protein, Magnesium and Zinc - to help boost your mood, sharpen your mind and combat stress.

Ingredients: 

  • 1 tin chickpeas, drained
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tsp tahini paste
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp olive oil or flax oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp pumpkin seeds (optional)

Method: 

  1. Blend all of the ingredients (apart from the pumpkin seeds) together in a food processor or in a bowl using a hand blender.
  2. Add in a splash of water if you prefer a thinner hummus.
  3. Lightly toast the pumpkin seeds under a grill or in a small dry frying pan (just for a minute, as they brown quickly).
