Goat's Cheese and Rocket Hummus

A great variation on traditional hummus. Soft goat's cheese adds a creaminess and lightness to the hummus, offset by the heat of the rocket leaves. Gluten Free.
Servings: 4 servings
Prep Time4 mins
Total Time4 mins

Ingredients

  • 1 can chickpeas - drained and rinsed)
  • 1/2 lemon - (juiced)
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 50 g soft goat's cheese
  • 1 tsp tahini
  • 1 tbs good olive oil
  • 1 handful rocket leaves
  • pepper and salt to taste

Instructions

  • Blitz the chickpeas briefly in a food processor. Keep a few back for garnishing.
  • Add the rest of the ingredients, blitz together to the desired consistency. If the hummus is too stiff, add some water to loosen it.
  • Serve, garnished with rocket leaves and the remaining chickpeas.

Notes

  • I used a soft fresh cheese for this - for a stronger flavour use a goats cheese log, or more mature soft goat's cheese.   
  • Once made the goat's cheese hummus will keep in a sealed container in the fridge for 3 days. 
  • You can of course whizz up the goats cheese and rocket with regular store bought hummus.  
  • Substitute some baby spinach for the rocket for for another twist on the recipe.
