AVOCADO & CHICKPEA DIP

AVOCADO & CHICKPEA DIP

Lately I’ve been experimenting with sneaking in chickpeas into my cooking to increase my family’s and my own intake of legumes and fibre. So far there’s been chickpea cookies, roasted chickpea snacks, chickpeas on rice, and chickpeas in salad… Last week I tried chickpeas in dip and you could barely tell they were there.

Ingredients:

  • 2.5 small avocados
  • 1 can (420g) chickpeas, rinsed and drained
  • 2 tablespoons Greek yoghurt
  • 1/4 lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste

Method:

Blend chickpeas with a bit of water until smooth. Add all other ingredients and blend or mix by hand.

This recipe makes a large enough batch for a few days – use it as a dip or spread in sandwich or as a creamy salad sauce! If the creamy texture and high fibre content isn’t enough to convince you, this dip is also high in protein due to the yoghurt and chickpeas.


扁嘴豆是一個既便宜又營養價值高的食品,含有豐富纖維素和蛋白質。最近在嘗試不同方法把扁嘴豆無聲無色地加到食物裡,目前試過曲奇餅、烤扁嘴豆、還有加到沙拉和米飯裡. 上個禮拜還成功地融入了牛油果醬裡,配上紅蘿蔔和小黃瓜,是一個很健康的零食!
