    I make this houmous all the time. It only takes a few minutes to prepare, and it's healthier than shop-bought without the oil. Increase or decrease the ingredients as desired, especially the chillies! Serve with tortilla crisps, pitta triangles or fresh vegetables. Add more of the reserved chickpea liquid for a smoother dip.

    This is an excellent recipe where no butter, oil or any type of fat is added - it's virtually fat free. It is not to dry and not too moist. They also taste excellent! The icing is optional but if you want them to be a little sweet - spread icing on top!!

    These fruited scones have a little cinnamon and nutmeg added, to give them a little oomph. They are also made with 50% wholemeal flour. Be sure to handle the dough as little as possible, to ensure a light and fluffy scone.

    A dip low in fat and calories, but with loads of flavour. Let the dip chill so the consistency thickens and the beans have time to meld with the spices. If you can't find tinned black beans, use dried or a tin of refried beans instead.
