It looks fab on a long black platter so the colours really ping.
I use dried chickpeas. Soak overnight and use the blade cover recipe on Slow Cook. This is far more economical than buying cans too.
You can freeze the chickpeas in can size amounts - approx 250g or make batches of hummus and freeze that in portions.
It's a great idea for lunchboxes too. Pull out a cube of hummus with carrot sticks etc and let it defrost in time for morning tea or lunch.
