    Default Is Hummus safe during pregnancy?

    Am really feeling like hummus atm but am not sure whether it is safe during pregnancy. I usually buy the ones in the supermarket section - of course I consume it before the expiry date and dispose of it by the time specified (most packs will say within 5 days of opening). I couldn't see why not but prefer to be cautious. Thanks ! ! !

    perfectly fine my dear! i make my own:

    2 cloves garlic roughly chopped
    1/4 cup lemon juice

    1/4 cup water

    400g canned chick peas rinsed and drained

    1/2 cup tahini
    1 teaspoon sea salt

    PLACE all ingredients in a food processor or blender and process until smooth, scraping the sides occasionally.

    another really yummy thing to do with the tahini you have left over is to use it as a spread on lunches etc.... YUM!!

    I ate heaps during both my pregnancies both home made and bought.
    TBH I never even thought about it.
    If you're concerned about the shop stuff it's easy to make your own.
