Quick and Easy Hummus Recipe

With a middle-eastern twang and versatile taste that goes with nearly any dish, it’s no wonder we’re so crazy about hummus over here. This chickpea-based dip has been put to the limits and it’s hard to find a fault. It acts as a tasty butter replacement on bread, a smooth topping for pancakes and middle-of-the-table party piece, is there anything it can’t do?!

Hummus is also better for you than you may realise. Chickpeas are high in fibre and a good source of protein and iron, making them a handy addition to any plant-based diet. Tahini is full of essential minerals and essential fatty acids. If you use a good quality olive oil, you'll get a healthy dose of antioxidants too! It’s such an easy recipe to try at home and yet so many of us are fixed into the habit of buying hummus from the shops. Taking 5 minutes of your time and a cheap hand blender can save you a heap of money in the long run. 

For a super healthy, satisfying and extremely quick dip then have a go at this easy hummus recipe...

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of chickpeas (preferably organic)
  • 1 large lemon
  • 3 tablespoons of tahini paste
  • Half a clove of finely chopped garlic (crushed) 
  • 2 tbsp olive oil and some for serving
  • Sea salt
  • 2 tablespoons of water
  • A sprinkle of paprika for serving

Method:

Empty the chickpeas into a sieve and rinse under cold water, then transfer to the food processor or jug if using a hand blender. Add the lemon juice, tahini, garlic, a dash of salt, water and slowly pour in the olive oil whilst blending (if it's safe to do so!) Blend all the ingredients together until smooth, then spoon out into a bowl. Drizzle over some olive oil and add one of our favourite toppings if you're feeling adventurous:

  • Z'atar
  • Harrissa
  • Toasted pine nuts
  • Finely chopped parsley 
  • Paprika 
  • Crushed pepper
  • Whole chickpeas 
  • Chopped roasted peppers 
  • Feta cheese and chopped parsley

If you have another favourite hummus topping or flavour combination, let me know!
