Homemade Cumin And Garlic Hummus

Posted by May Simpkin | 23 April 2018 | Food & Drink, Magazine

Making your own hummus is much easier than you think and a great one to have in the fridge when you’re looking for a healthy wholesome dip for the whole family. There’s plenty of scope with flavours here and this middle eastern version is a delicious and authentic flavoursome combination.

Making homemade hummus:
1 400g can chickpeas
2 tablespoons tahini
Juice from half a lemon
1 small clove garlic, crushed
1/2 teaspoon cumin powder
Sea salt/ground pepper to taste

Variations; add before blending
1 teaspoon smoked paprika
30g flat-leaf parsley, finely chopped
2-3 pinches chilli flakes


Here’s how….
Rinse the chickpeas well and drain.

Combine the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, cumin, salt and half the lemon juice in a food processor and blend to a creamy consistency.

Add warm/tepid water, a little at a time to the desired consistency.

Taste and season according to preferences; adding more lemon or salt if needed.
