Free Healthy Recipe - Chickpea and Avocado Dip

Dairy free, Gluten free, Low carbohydrate, Low GI, Wheat Free

Here's a variation on hummus - the natural oils in avocado gives the dip a lovely creamy rich consistency. Like hummus it's high in energy and monounsaturated fat and while it has numerous health benefits, if you're watching your weight, enjoy it in moderation.

Ingredients
1 400g can chickpeas, drained
1 lemon juiced
2 tbsp olive oil
Method

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.

Serve with crudités, crispy mountain bread or grainy sourdough with the beetroot and apple winter salad.

Note: Avocado and chickpeas are both excellent foods to help lower cholesterol.
