The Most Delicious Hummus!

Hummus is my favourite food! I love it on bread or on my baked sweet potatoes! It is a tasty dish that originated in the Middle East. This recipe is so delicious I had to share it with you immediately! It is based on an Abel & Cole recipe (my new favourite all organic supermarket!). It is super quick to make (20 minutes). I have been wanting to post a hummus recipe for a while. Hope you enjoy it!


Makes 2 pots


400g can                    Chickpeas

150ml                         Filtered water

1/2                              Lemon

1                                 Small garlic clove

3tbsp                          Tahini

2tbsp                          Hemp oil

2tbsp                          Olive oil

1/4tsp                         Pink Himalayan salt

1/4tsp                         Black pepper


Drain and rinse the chickpeas.

Place them in a pan with the filtered water. Simmer for 7 minutes.

When the chickpeas are simmering, cut the lemon in half and squeeze the juice of one half into a blender. Finely chop the garlic clove. Add in the tahini, oils and 3tbsp filtered water. Season with salt and black pepper.

Next add the cooked chickpeas into the blender. Blend on a low speed for 10 seconds until the hummus is completely smooth.

Pour the hummus out into a container and leave it to cool. Then put it in the fridge to set.

Enjoy it spread on bread or as a dip for carrot sticks! Keeps in the fridge for 3 days.

Note: Ideally store in a glass container. If storing in a plastic container, ensure it has a triangle symbol with a number 5 or 24 inside as these are the only types of plastic that don’t leach into the food!
