Hummus February 2007

With the weather being so hot and sticky in Sydney at the moment I find it hard to get into the mood for cooking. Nonetheless, I know that if my husband and I don't prepare something nutritious then we're likely to resort to quick-fix stodgy foods with little nutritional value.

So here's my favourite 'fast food' for summer, packed with loads of Famine-Busting nutrients. Team it with a fresh salad and crusty bread for a light meal, or pack it into containers and take some bread or crackers with you for a wholesome snack on the run.

For dozens more delicious recipes based on whole foods, please refer to my book The Don't Go Hungry Diet.

Makes 1 cup
Preparation time 10 minutes
