Here’s another of our easy “lifestyle change” healthy (ish) easting recipes. It’s great to have in the fridge for when those unavoidable “I really  need a munchy” feeling kicks in. It is best enjoyed with celery sticks, cucumber chips or carrot strips … pitta bread is even nicer (as a treat of course!)

The amount of spice you add can be varied subject to your own personal taste.
