      Very helpful



      Dip you tortilla chips in it!

      Sorry for the yummy reviews at lunchtime but I have just received the mail that dooyoo accepted my product proposal and I have a few free minutes while my kids are sleeping, so I post quickly these two reviews.

      The other Houmous we bought together with the Moroccan Houmous was the Roasted Red Pepper Houmous. We used as a dip to our tortilla chips.

      Taste, texture, experience
      This is a lovely creamy houmous with red paprika pieces in it. It has savoury sour taste, it is not hot at all. Compared to the Moroccan Houmous this one was a bit thinner but wasn't runny at all. It fitted well the cheese flavoured tortilla chips. It comes in a transparent pot as well. The pot is wrapped in a cardboard box, half open. On this paper wrapper you can see two pieces of red paprika topped with some houmous. As the pot is transparent you can see its pale orangey colour which is due to the paprika pieces in it. Its full price is 1.19 pounds per pot (200g).

      Cooked Chickpeas (38%), Rapeseed Oil, Water, Roasted Red Pepper (12%), Tahini (12%) (from Sesame), Concentrated Lemon Juice, Salt, Garlic.

      My opinion
      I don't really like hot dishes so I dipped only every third tortillas in the Moroccan Houmous and the rest in this one. I like its sour taste, it reminds me to sour cream and seems to be a light dip. Actually if you take a look at the nutritional information you can see that this houmous contains a lot of calories too. The chickpeas is healthy so I calm myself that although it contains a lot of calories it contains also useful vitamins and minerals.
      We used it as a dip to our cheese flavoured tortilla chips but I can imagine it on the top of a crumpet or toast. Next time I would like to try it to put on fresh lettuce and fill a naan bread or pita with it.
      Give it a go!
