Homemade Hummus and other healthy lunch ideas


Homemade Hummus & other healthy lunch recipes

Homemade hummus is so easy to make, healthy and yet because it is so creamy always tastes so decadent. It is also so versatile that it can be dipped into with freshly chopped vegetables or used as a filling for sandwiches. I love it with felafels.  It is also very easy for an ‘on the go’ lunch, put it into a tub and you have an instant lunch wherever you are. Mmmm.


  • 1 tin of chickpeas
  • 2 tsp tahini ( this is so important, I cannot make hummus without it)
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • Pinch of salt


  1. Tip the chickpeas with their juice into a food processor/blender.
  2. Apart from the olive oil, add all the other ingredients and start blitzing them.
  3. Slowly pour the olive oil in whilst the blender is running until the ingredients are well combined and smooth.
  4. Tip the hummus into a bowl, if you like extra olive oil drizzle a little on top of the hummus. If you like a little kick add a sprinkling of paprika.
  5. Enjoy!

So You Know...

As you've likely heard and seen, there's an increasing focus on the authenticity of follower growth and engagement on social platforms across the Influencer Marketing community. The platforms themselves have taken measures to deter inauthentic activity and brands now more closely scrutinise the audiences of the influencers with whom they are partnering.

The Flea Network has implemented a system that will detect abnormal spikes in following and engagement, and flag these properties. Of course, such spikes can often be attributed to viral posts or high-profile brands that bring greater exposure to some content.

If one of your social accounts is flagged by our system without an obvious reason, we may reach out to you for assistance in understanding it. If we find any influencer has artificially inflated their audience size or engagement using paid acquisition or automated, third-party tools, we will remove them permanently from our influencer community.

Feel free to reach out to us at bloggers@fleaenterprises.com with any questions or comments.

Thank you!
