It has been found that micro greens contain forty times the level of nutrients than their mature counterparts. These tiny gems are rich in antioxidants and high in potassium, zinc, iron and magnesium. Adding them to a batch of hummus will boost your energy levels and set you up for a nutrient-filled, high-energy day.
1 400g can of chickpeas
1 clove of garlic, minced
the juice of one lemon
60ml vegetable oil
a generous bunch or two of microgreens (I used radish and it is delicious!)
Drain the chickpeas.
Add all the ingredients, except the micro greens, into the jug of a blender and blitz together.
Once you have a smooth, creamy mixture you may add the microgreens.
Blitz for as short a time as possible – you JUST want to chop and incorporate the herbs.
Enjoy as a dip for crudities or as a snack on a wholewheat cracker.
