Easy Hummus

Hummus is naturally high in good fat because of its sesame seed (Tahini) and olive oil content. It is versatile and easily stored in the fridge, making it an easy addition to your diet. Hummus is great served with carrot sticks or oat cakes as a snack, as a base in a wrap or crispbread for lunch, or on top of a salad.
