Recipe: Quick Hummus

We've started really getting into hummus recently. It's not something that G has ever really tried until a couple of months ago so we've been buying it in the grocery shop so that he can get a taste for it.

Today we decided to make our own to see if it would be as good as shop bought, and I would say that it pretty much is.

We used the BBC 'quick hummus' recipe  with a few amendments and I would certainly recommend you give it a go.

I had it for lunch spread on a wrap with lettuce, slices of pepperoni and black olives and it was very tasty!

1 can chickpeas (soaked already)
2tbsp olive oil
2tbsp lemon juice
4tbsp water
1tsp cumin
1tsp paprika
2 cloves crushed garlic
1tsp salt


  • Place everything in a blender and blend until a smooth paste.
  • It's that simple!
  • If serving to guests place in a ceramic bowl, make drizzle with olive oil and place a few whole chickpeas on top.
