    An extra tasty but low fat houmous, blended with roasted red peppers and cayenne pepper for a kick! Adjust the heat to taste, starting with less than called for and adding more as desired. You can also use chilli powder instead of cayenne.

    Houmous gets a flavour boost thanks to parsley and spring onion. It's also super easy - everything goes into the food processor. Vary the flavour by adding a few chopped mint leaves, a little fresh ginger or dried chillies.

    This version of the delicious, creamy Middle Eastern dip uses yoghurt and is delightful with raw vegetables or toasted pitta triangles. It is much lower in fat than classic houmous.
