Smoked three bean houmous (vegan, dairy & gluten free)

This deliciously light houmous combines chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans), cannellini beans and rosecoco (borlotti) beans to create a creamy texture with a slightly nutty aftertaste. Beans are a fantastic source of soluble fibre, which keeps you feeling full for longer and slows the release of sugar into your bloodstream.

Houmous will keep well in the fridge for up to four days, so spend just ten minutes making this recipe on a Sunday night and you’ll have a fantastic healthy snack to keep you away from the office biscuit tin!
