Hommus, it may be bland in colour, but it certainly packs a punch in flavour.

And since we’re self-confessed hommus-holics, we’ve spent countless hours searching for new and exciting snacks that we can pair with the heavenly whip of chickpea and tahini.

And, thanks to the team at SSS Foods together with health and fitness genius, Miranda Brady (@clean_treats), have taken on Donna Hay’s recipe and found the perfect solution: Healthy Chicken and Pumpkin Fritters smothered in SSS Foods’ Coriander, Cumin and Chilli Hommus.

Lose your crackers, carrots or chips, because we’re all about these fritts.
