My sister and I made hummus for breakfast this morning. With no pita bread at home, we had it with plain crackers instead. Still good!

The ingredients include 1 can of chickpeas, 1/3 lemon for both its juice and zest, 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil, and around 100g of Greek yogurt, garlic (optional), salt and paprika. Preparation instructions? Hardly any! You just have to combine these ingredients either with a blender (which will take you less than 2 minutes) or by hand. 

We went primitive, mashed the peas and combined everything by hand, using only a fork and a spoon. We had a very bad experience with the blender, so we would rather take the rough path. Besides, mashing by hand left our hummus a much fuller and chunkier texture! But for those who prefer really smooth hummus, blender is the way to go!

Chickpeas have a rich, nutty, buttery flavour, extremely tasty but very heavy. Lighten it up with the yogurt and lemon acid, they work perfectly together and keep this dip fresh and exciting!
