Celebrating Food Revolution Year Long: Simple Hummus

Hello again!!

Thank you for joining my little chefling and me in celebrating Food Revolution all year long.

(If you are joining us now: The big day is over (a full recap and links to all the albums HERE) and like we promised each other we are going to keep this revolution alive 365 days and create a healthier and happier world! This year Food Revolution Day was, above all, about sharing the power of cooking and we are focusing on ten recipes that together can teach us all the skills we need to feed ourselves and our families good, nutritious food for years to come! Each month I will be sharing one out of the ten Jamie Oliver’s Food Revolution recipes so we can all cook it together with our children. Just one recipe in 30 days! Yes, that is it, so doable right? And at the end of the year, I assure you we will have children who will appreciate new flavourstaste new ingredients and flavoursdevelop a love for real food and will make tons of happy memories with you in the kitchen).

Month two. Recipe two.

So how many of you helped your little one to make the simple cheese omelette?

Did the children enjoy all the breaking, whisking and flipping!! My little chefling sure did! She made her own version with baby spinach, turkey ham and halloumi. Do remember to share the pictures of their yummy omelettes here.

Here is the second of the ten recipes that our kids will be learning this year.

A Simple Hummus.

The recipe again takes all of ten minutes from start to finish (if you are using tinned chickpeas). However, I like to soak dried chickpeas the previous night and pressure cook them the next day and that just requires a little planning, that’s all.

Chickpeas – the star ingredient in houmous – are incredibly good for you. High in protein and fibre and more than ten micronutrients, including a hefty amount of the mineral copper, keeping our hair and skin nice and healthy, this is a great, nutritious snack. Serve it with crunchy veg for dipping, breadsticks or lovely warm flatbreads”.

Here is super fun video for your little ones that they can watch before they begin making their tub of hummus.

Vary how you serve your hummus: crunchy vegetables like radishes, raw asparagus, lettuce or even apple are all delicious – see what’s in season and experiment. Snacking the right way is super important and hummus is a great option for those in-between hunger pangs.
