Easy Homemade Hummus

I’ve been playing around with hummus recipes for a while now, and I think I might have just cracked it.

  • 1x can of chickpeas, reserving the water
  • 2x tsp tahini
  • 1x garlic clove, crushed
  • 1/2x tsp salt, pink Himalayan if you have it
  • 3x tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2x tbsp fresh lemon juice

  
You can double or triple the ingredients, depending on how many you want to serve. These qualities will produce about 4 good sized servings.

  1. Rinse chickpeas, reserving water from the can, and place in food processor
  2. Add tahini, garlic, salt and lemon juice and blend together, adding about 3-4 tbsp of the chickpea can water
  3. Whilst blending, drizzle in the extra virgin olive oil, adding more to reach desired consistency, reserving some to drizzle over at the end
  4. Serve, adding extra chickpeas or paprika as garnish

And there you have it, a simple, quick and easy recipe for a household favourite. I’ve also tried with peanut butter (yes, you read that right) instead of tahini, and it works quite well!

Next on my list is a roasted jalapeño version.
