Hummus is so easy to make at home and so much more delicious than the shop brought variety. It’s also really simple to add a twist, whether a pinch of smoked paprika and smoked sea salt like the recipe below, red peppers or get creative with herbs and spices. If you have a jar or tin of chickpeas you can have it ready to eat in minutes, and if you have a bag of dried chickpeas, prepare them according to the packet and then jump on in.

Frittata is the perfect quick dinner or lunch and can be whipped together using store cupboard ingredients. In this recipe we’ve used fresh and zesty sea salt for summery flavours with cherry tomatoes and fresh basil, but mix it up depending on what’s in season or what you've got in the fridge.
