Two ingredient hummus style dip

This two ingredient hummus style dip is my contribution to the Nola mayonnaise #createastir challenge.

Nola asked people to use their super popular mayonnaise in out of the box ways and I thought that hummus style dip would be perfect.

I’ve tried making hummus at home quite a few times before and quite frankly it has always been a bit of a fail…

“Hummus is a Levantine dip or spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas or other beans, blended with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, salt, and garlic”

I could never get the texture right, too little oil too much lemon, where do I even buy tahini. So I wondered what would happen if I blended my chickpeas with Nola mayonnaise, I mean mayo is made with oil and spices and vinegar/lemon juice so that’s like most of the ingredients sorted… So that’s what I did

Two ingredient hummus style dip:

– a tin of chickpeas
– four tablespoons of Nola original mayonnaise

Method:

– blend the drained tin of chickpeas, add mayo and blend more
– season to taste (I didn’t count seasoning as part of the ingredients as it is completely optional)

This recipe is great for me because  I really like raw vegetables, and cutting meat out of my diet means more vegetables and more dip, this is a very economical and super easy way to make that happen.

What is your Nola mayonnaise recipe of choice?
