This a recipe from one of the participants on the Cooking Well for Diabetes Courses. It is probably one of the best hummus I have ever tasted. Chickpeas are a protein, so there is hardly any carbs in this recipe, which makes it the perfect snack for someone with diabetes. It is also rich in fibre and iron.
5 minutes. All ingredients are widely available in supermarket chains throughout Ireland.
- 1 can of chick peas drained
- 1-2 cloves of garlic
- Small bunch of fresh coriander
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2 teaspoons of lemon juice
- 4 sundried tomatoes
- Salt & Pepper to taste
Use a hand blender to mix to a fine paste. Cover & chill in the fridge.
Serve with carrot, celery & cucumber sticks, bread sticks, oatcakes, ryvita, slice of wholegrain toast. Obviously when adding carbohydrates when serving will increase the overall carb content.
