  1. Making hummus is on my to-do list for today. This sounds very similar, just with a different bean. I will give it a try next time after I get out to buy the broadbeans. Hummus is one of the few foods my 2 1/2 year old will voluntarily eat these days, so it would be good to branch out a bit from there and challenge his taste buds incrementally!

    1. I know it can be very difficult to introduce new flavours to the little ones. I read an article recently that mentioned kids have 30,000 taste buds, and only 10,000 by adulthood, concluding that little ones experience flavour 3 times stronger. This explained my 4 year old step daughters massive reaction to garlic bread! Hummus is a great healthy dip, try it without the tahini, I think it’s just as yummy.
