Although chickpeas aren’t true carbs, they are quite high in starch which puts them on Orange B

 1 lemon juiced
 ¼ cup tahini
 1 clove garlic (whole)

 ½ tsp tsp ground cumin

We’ve found that a dip of some sort is always needed for a quick bite. This is the Greenest dip you’re going to get, and it is probably the tastiest you’ll get too. Using this basic hummus recipe, you can actually swap the chickpeas for quite a few other veggies like pumpkin, butternut squash, aubergine or even sun dried tomatoes and get a similar, if not better, result.
