What seemed like a good idea seems to have fallen on stony ground.
Im hoping some one will come up with an altermate to fatty cream and a not so sickly butter icing for cakes

Only just noticed this one!  I too would like a nice recipe for a tasty, but less sickly and calorific butter icing!   ;) ;) ;)

I would imagine a Mascarpone topping would be a little less calorific.

I'm not sure this counts as super healthy as it has avocado in it, but it is healthier as you don't use tahini or any oil.

Its quick and very delicious  :D

Avocado Houmous

Drain a can of chick peas and blend with a chopped clove of garlic, the flesh of a ripe avocado,  the juice of 1 large  lemon, 1/2 tsp tabasco or chopped fresh chili to your taste and 1/2 tsp cumin.

Avocado's are very healthy aren't they?

They have lots going for them, but also contain saturated fat and are fairly calorific.  It is a lighter fresher houmous, but not a completely free pass if you are watching your weight or your fat intake.

I made borlotti hummus this afternoon.

A mug of dried borlottis (soaked and cooked)
five cloves of garlic
Juice of a lemon
five slices of pickled jalapeno's
about half a mug of olive oil

Blitzed to a paste then the olive oil added until it looks about right.
Salt and pepper to taste.
