Simple Homemade Houmous

Houmous is possibly my favourite food ever, and is really healthy too.  It has loads of protein, fibre, healthy fat, iron and calcium.  This is a really simple, basic recipe but delicious.  Homemade houmous is really quick and easy to make and tastes better and is healthier than store-bought houmous.  It’s great spread on toast, served with salad, crudités or in a sandwich.  Kids love it too!



1 tin of chickpeas

1 clove of garlic

1 tablespoon tahini

Juice of half a lemon

A few glugs of extra virgin olive oil

A dash of ground cumin

A dash of paprika

Sea salt and black pepper


How it’s made:

Drain and rinse the chickpeas, peel the garlic, and blend all the ingredients until smooth, with a splash of water to help it blend.  Serve sprinkled with some paprika or drizzled with olive oil.
