Absolute piece of cake to make this and so much more tasty than the shop bought stuff. Here’s a basic classic humous. For a vacation try this¬†Red Pepper Hummus


  • 1 x 400g Tin of Chickpeas
  • 1 x Clove Fresh Garlic - crushed
  • 1 x tbsp Tahini
  • 2 x tbsp Lemon Juice
  • 3 tbsp x Extra Virgin Olive oil
  • Salt & Pepper
  • Pinch Smoked Paprika
  • 1/2 tsp Cumin


Step 1

Rinse the chickpeas in cold water and add to a food processor with the tahini, garlic, lemon juice, cumin and whizz/blitz up.

Step 2

Slowly add the olive oil while blitzing. Add salt & pepper to taste - IF the mixture is too thick add 2-4 tsp water to change the 'consistency'

Step 3

Serve in a bowl with sprinkle with the paprika & a drizzle of olive oil. Will keep in a fridge for 5 days

I just like cooking great food..

    I am doing this recipe tonight but it has a problem. Cumin mentioned in Method but not in ingredients. Not that I stick to recipes very much. Will leave feedback.
