Hummus Dip Recipe

I always prefer home made dips to the pre-package ones from the supermarket. It is quite easy to make your own. They taste so much better and you get so much more dip than if you bought them ready made.
Hummus is such a healthy one and is great to serve with some turkish or pita bread.


1 400g can of organic chickpeas
1 tablespoon tahini paste (this is made from sesame's and is available in the health section)
1 clove of freshly crushed garlic
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/3 cup olive oil (80ml)
sea salt


Place chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon juice, salt and oil in a food processor or blender and process until nice and smooth.
Turn out into a dip serving bowl and arrange the turkish or pita breads around it.
Add a small amount of finely chopped parsley on top to garnish if prefered.

Caramelised Onion Recipe

I have always loved the smell of onions cooking and could never have steak without some served with it. To turn your onions into caramelised is so simple. Just a couple of extra ingredients and you will have your guests asking if there is any more onions.
I love to make this and put on top of mashed sweet potatoes and serve with a lovely piece of sirloin steak or even with T bone's.


2 large brown onions
2 tablespoons sugar (brown is best)
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons buter or olive oil ( I prefer butter)


Heat butter or oil in a large frypan over medium heat.
Add the onions and cook for about 8 - 10 minutes or until softened.
Add the sugar and vinegar and continue cooking for about another 2 minutes or until onions have caramelised.
Take off heat and add to your meat or vegetables.
You can store for up to a week, in a sealed jar in the refrigerator.
