Marvellous home-made hummus

We now have over 10 stores across South Africa offering pantry products such as stoneground flour, oats, and raw chickpeas in our bulk dispensers. To give you some inspiration, we have decided to offer some recipes on everyone’s favourite and healthiest dip, spread and protein-rich snack – Hummus!

Did you know you can make tasty hummus in your own home, cheaper and healthier than the store-bought varieties? It’s easy too – all you need is a blender.  The Middle Eastern favourite is basically blended chickpeas. (In fact, hummus is the Arabic word for chickpeas!)

We’ve got 4 super recipes for you to try.
