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
– 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.
