A quick and easy recipe for Pea Hummus. Makes a super healthy snack for kids and great for lunch boxes too.
If there’s one type of food that I get asked about the most, it has to be snacks. It can be difficult to keep coming up with appetising snacks for kids that are healthy too. I’m too often guilty of resorting to packets of snack bars when my children are screaming for some food when I’m busy. But in an effort to cut down our shopping bills and to feed my family as much nutritious food as possible, I’m trying to make my own snacks now.
Pea Hummus is a recent discovery and a new favourite in my house. This recipe is super kid friendly as the hummus contains no added oil or tahini; too ingredients which often put kids off hummus. Served with sliced raw veggies it makes a really healthy and filling snack and can be packed up for lunch boxes too.
