Who doesn’t like hummus? I mean really? There are so many different varieties you can find in the shops these days, but I promise none of those will beat the taste of fresh homemade hummus, especially with a warm toasted pita!
- 400g tin of chickpeas
- 3 cloves of garlic
- 3 tbsp lemon juice
- 3 tbsp tahini
- 3 tbsp olive oil
- 1-2 tbsp water
- salt and pepper to taste
- Drain the tin of chickpeas and rinse. Add to food processor or high speed blender with lemon juice and garlic cloves.
- Blend for 1 minute before adding the oil, tahini and water, if the hummus is too grainy or thick here then you can add water 1 tablespoon at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
Top with a little extra olive oil and some fresh cracked pepper and enjoy! This usually stays fresh in my fridge in an airtight container for up to 3 days.
My Crispy Roasted Chickpeas make a great topping for a little crunch!
How about adding a big dollop of my Easy Vegan Pesto on top to mix it up?
Have you ever tried making your own hummus? I’d love to know if you try this recipe and how you like it. Make sure to tag me on instagram if you do!
