Vitamin B6 is important for producing melatonin, our master sleep hormone. Chickpeas, the main ingredient in this hummus, are a good source of B6. Combined with basil, a mild relaxer, this recipe makes a nice sleep enhancing snack.
1 400g tin chickpeas, drained
Juice of ½ lemon
4 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 bunch fresh basil, leaves torn
Sea salt and black pepper
Place all the ingredients in a blender or food processor, season with salt and pepper and blend into a thick, luscious dip.
