Wednesday catch-up

Dodgy belly meant no bikey today but I did gym.  No progressions of note, but I did do 2x 60s planks on 3x medicine balls with an aded 5 pressups on the balls at the end.

New houmous recipe!  This time it's spicy bean (serves 6) :-
  • 40ml Lemon juice
  • 1 clove Garlic
  • 15ml Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1 Can/240g Chick Peas, in Water, Canned, Drained
  • ½ Tsp salt
  • 15ml Grapeseed Oil
  • 180g Kidney Beans, In Water (drained Weight)
  • ¼ Tsp Cumin Seeds
  • ½ Tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 1 Tsp Garam Masala
Whizz it all up with a blender and serve with hot pitta bread or slice raw vegetables for dipping.  (note the lack of tahini in this one was utterly accidental, but it's nice without it)
