Hummus

Hummus is my party dip of choice, not only is it super tasty making it a real crowd pleaser, it can also be whipped up in less than 5 minutes, perfect for impromptu guests!

Plus its high protein and fibre content make it really good for you which is a bonus.

I’ve made this short video to show you how to make hummus using simple ingredients that you probably already have in your pantry. Once you start making this regularly you’ll make sure to have them on hand for whenever the craving strikes.

Some notes on the ingredients: I normally use pre-cooked chickpeas that I buy in a glass jar, if you can only find tinned chickpeas I encourage you to choose BPA free wherever possible.

Tahini is the magic ingredient that really brings the hummus alive. It’s made from sesame seeds and well worth investing in as it keeps for ages in the fridge. It brings a creamy smoky flavour that elevates the hummus from a bland chickpea paste to a thing of beauty!

If you don’t have tahini then try using sesame oil. I tried it once when I ran out of tahini and has promised to bring hummus to a party, it was a huge hint!

Hummus variations: Once you’ve mastered the basic recipe I outline in the video you can customise it to your taste by:

  • Adding/removing garlic
  • Making it creamier, lighter and fluffier by adding water
  • Experimenting with adding avocado, roasted peppers and sun dried tomatoes
  • Garnishing by sprinkling cumin seeds, paprika or olive oil on top
