How to make hummus – recipe

Hummus

Hummus is incredibly easy to make. It does take a little time when you’re making it from dried chickpeas but it’s low effort, you can get on with other things while the chickpeas are cooking. Our favourite way to cook them is overnight in the slow cooker (we make up a big batch for using in lots of things, not just hummus) but the fastest way is with a pressure cooker. You can also boil them.

Ingredients

200g cooked chickpeas

juice of half a lemon

4 tablespoons of water. For extra flavour you can use water left over from cooking the chickpeas

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 tablespoon of tahini

2 cloves of garlic

1 teaspoon of cumin

1 teaspoon of paprika

pinch of fine sea salt

Method

Add everything to the blender and blend . Taste and add any extra olive oil, salt, cumin, garlic or paprika to your personal taste. If the hummus is slightly dry and not blending well add extra oil or water. Enjoy with warm, fresh bread. Or chopped veg. Or in a falafel wrap. Or in big dollops straight from the blender 🙂
