Omega 3 rich sardine & chickpea hummus

Tinned sardines are a great source of omega 3, calcium and vitamin D and this nutrient packed dip is great spread on toast or eaten with raw veg sticks. The bones in sardines are very small, and when they are cooked and put in tins, the bones get softened considerably, but make sure to blend this hummus thoroughly.
