How To… Make your own Hummus

Making your own hummus, houmous, homus…whichever way you say/write it, there seem to be some many different ways depending on who you speak to; is actually super easy and you don’t need to have ANY cooking knowledge to make it.

This recipe is for a very basic hummus but you can add in pretty much anything else you want to this base for a delicious and healthy, protein packed dip.

The Ingredients…
1. One tin of chickpeas (use the water they come in as well)
2. Two cloves of garlic (more if you love garlic)
3. A splash of olive oil
4. Salt and pepper (to taste)
5. One squeezed lemon
6. Two tablespoons of Tahini paste
7. A small handful of parsley

Alternative Recipe…
Instead of using parsley, you could swap this out for fresh mint leaves and add in approx 80 grams of peas (unfrozen) for a slightly sweeter, fresher flavour combo – my current favourite version!

The Recipe…
1. Chuck it all in to the blender and blend until you get a texture you like.
2. Taste the mixture – add salt and pepper to taste.
3. ENJOY!

I love to spread mine (once it’s nice and cold), on a piece of fresh bread, topped with slices of warm and crispy turkey bacon and a little fresh lettuce….to die for!

This mixture will last approx 3 to 4 days in the fridge if covered.
