Hummus… it’s a Smooth Criminal

Olive Oil, sesame seeds and maple syrup, exactly what I needed… More things that I can’t eat. Sometimes I want to punch Aunt Jemima right in the face. Stupid Maple Syrup… No wonder she’s smiling, she can still eat the stuff.

For some odd reason I seem to be having a reaction to all of the above, clearly gluten and dairy wasn’t enough. I swear soon my diet is going to consist of fresh air and water, or it will until I develop an allergy to those.

Sorry one minute pity party over, I feel better now.

The truth is, pity parties actually light a fire under my ass (and yes not being able to eat hummus was making me sad) so I thought screw you sesame seeds, I’ll make my own hummus. Pfffffft, sesame seeds.

Sesame seeds

So instead of crying over split milk, or in this case sesame seed filled hummus, I put on my big girl pants and found another way.

Ingredients

1 can of chickpeas (look for BPA free)
because who wants Bisphenol A in their hummus

Almonds

1 ½ tsp cumin

½ tsp paprika

½ tsp chilli flakes (because I like my hummus to have a little kick)

salt and pepper to taste

Throw everything into your food processor and blend it up. Consistency is up to you, I like my hummus to be a smooth like a criminal. Store in a glass jar in your fridge. Not too sure of the shelf because i ate my entire jar in less than 4 days.
