This recipe is hummus with a twist - ultra simple and perfect for a grab-and-go packed lunch. It's a low free version of normal humus and honestly, it's just as good as, if not better than, the usual stuff! When I have humus I could eat a cup full, honestly! The great thing about this recipe is you can go crazy on it guilt free -  it's super healthy and low-calorie. 


For the hummus -

              1 can Chick Peas, 3/4 drained (keep 1/4 juice aside)
               1/2 T Extra Virgin Olive Oil
               3 T. fresh lemon Juice
               2 cloves of garlic, minced
               1/2 tsp Salt
               1/4 tsp Pepper
               A pinch of Paprika

For the sandwich:
              1 carrot, peeled and grated 
               T of Caramelized red onions 
              2 handful of baby spinach leaves
              4 chopped and pitted green olives
               2 Pita bread or 4 slices of wholegrain bread


Put the chickpeas, lemon, carrot, paprika, salt and pepper and garlic together in a blender and blend until smooth. If the mixture is too thick to your liking you can add the remaining chickpea juice. Taste and season according to taste with salt, pepper and lemon. Remove from the blender and mix in the paprika. Toast the bread, spread a generous layer of humus on top, then add the carrots, leaves, olives and enjoy!
