Asda Olive Houmous
Advantages: gorgeous treat and cheap
Disadvantages: none what so ever
I'm a HUGE houmous fan and must eat about two full pots a week. Because of said addiction I believe myself to be an authority on this marvelous dip. I find it amazing that they vary so much from store to store.
Asda is at the lower end of the price scale from 79p to £1. You can pay up to £3 a pot in a deli or waitrose.
This said, it is at the top of the flavor scale. It has a thick consistency and is fairly coarsely blended for a houmous but with a very even distribution of olive pieces that are about the size of cracked black pepper. More expensive brands tend to have the consistency of toothpaste. This houmous works well in sandwiches as it chunkier it is not absorbed as easily.
The flavour is strong but no ingredient over powers another. With the flavourings all being a force in their own right (garlic, olives and lemon juice), it is not an easy balance to reach but Asda does this with its olive houmous. I am officially a fan.
Do be mindful of the calorific content if you are mindful of those things but it also has many benefits. I personally like to spread this on a baked potato (generously).
