Meatless Monday: Butternut Squash, garlic and rosemary hummus


Quick to prepare but great for outdoor gatherings and picnics, hummus is the perfect food for the Bank Holiday or Memorial Day.  

Butternut Squash, garlic and rosemary hummus
Serves 2-4 

5cm piece butternut squash taken from the 'neck' end, roasted and peeled and diced when cooled (I roasted this with our dinner yesterday and kept it in the fridge until today but to be quicker you could peel and dice the squash and boil until tender)
1 can chickpeas
1 tbsp tahini
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 tbsp olive oil 
1 sprig rosemary, stalk removed
1/2 tsp minced garlic

Whiz all the ingredients together in a high speed blender.  Enjoy with crudites, pitta bread or bread sticks.

Have a great Bank Holiday
