Roasted Garlic Hummus

Homemade hummus should contain less saturated fat and salt compared to the shop brought version and can make a healthy snack. It is a good source of protein, fibre and good fats. This is a fantastic recipe I adapted from the BOSH cookbook. I have tried a name of different hummus recipes and none of them compare to this one. You need to allow time to roast the garlic but otherwise its pretty quick. Ingredients (5-10 servings) 3-4 cloves of garlic 1 x 400g tin chickpeas 1 tbsp of tahini 2 tbsp of lemon juice 1 -2 tsp of olive or rapeseed oil 2-3 tbsp of water 15g of fresh chives Sprinkling of sea salt Equipment Food processor or hand held bender. Method 1. Preheat oven to 160 degrees. 2. Roast

Avocado smoothie - A great source of vitamin D

Avocado smoothie with honey and soya milk By using milk fortified with vitamin D will help increase your intake. Vitamin D is a fat-soluble vitamin, therefore consuming it with a source of good fats like avocado will help to enhance your absorption. Ingredients (1 serving) - ½ an avocado - 1 cup of soy milk or coconut milk (check the label for a unsweetened version, fortified with vitamin D) - 1 tsp of good quality honey - dash of vanilla essence (optional) - 1 scoop protein powder (optional) Method Add all ingredients to blender or nutribullet. If you find the consistency too thick, add some water. This smoothie is also delicious served with ice. #recipes #VitaminD #BoneHealth #Nutrition #H
