This sweet and savoury hummus has a whole lot more going for it than a traditional hummus with the benefit of being low in fat and high in fibre and nutrition. It’s ideal as a spread on wholemeal pitta bread or as a dip for crunchy raw vegetables.

drained and rinsed
1.5 - Lemon
or lime, juice only
1 - Red Onion
Preheat the oven to 180°C/gas mark 4.
Place the sliced onion on a baking tray and drizzle with the maple syrup. Roast in the oven for 15 to 20 minutes, but check after 10 minutes.
Blend the rest of the ingredients together in a food processor, then add the roasted onions and blitz to combine with the hummus base.
Store the hummus in the fridge in a sealed airtight container for up to a week, but it freezes well too.
