We used to buy hummus until we made this... mind blown! This takes roughly 10 minutes to prepare and tastes incredible. You'll never want to eat store-bought again.

  • 2 cups canned, cooked and drained chickpeas (540ml or 19 oz liq)
  • 2 medium cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 1 large lemon)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp kosher salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • 1 tbsp water
  • Ground paprika and olive oil for garnish
  1. Add all the ingredients to a blender and blend for about 2 to 3 minutes or until smooth. Blend longer for a smoother consistency. You may need to stop half way through and scrape down the sides with a spatula. 

  2. Pour the hummus into a dish. Use the back of spoon to draw in a circular path into the hummus.

  3. Pour a little olive oil into the path and sprinkle with paprika. Enjoy with your favourite pita bread or crackers!

Recipe Notes
  • You can also use a food processor instead of a blender.
  • If you like your hummus a little less thick, add 1 or 2 tablespoons of water while blending.
