A few years ago we had a major financial melt down. Two small children, one income and a monthly deficit of around £1000… It’s when I started really looking at what we spent on food. Houmous was always a staple in our weekly shop, and the kids love it, but when I realised I could make a months supply for the same price as a supermarket tub, I couldn’t go back. Financial crisis over the Houmous is here to stay!
