Hoummus…

The trendiest dip? 

It gets an invite to every party, it is always being restyled and everyone loves it! 

It’s such an easy food product, works great as a snack for those awful hunger pains that strike upon us at either 11am or 3pm, works perfectly with lunch or dinner and goes down a storm at any social event that require the famous ‘nibbles’. 

Supermarkets sell hoummus in handy small pots which are great, however, have you ever thought of making it yourself? It SO easy, I promise you. Once you’ve made your own, you won’t go back. 

You can dress it up/down as much as you wish, start with the base of standard hoummus (recipe below), and add your chosen ingredients (sun-dried tomatoes, Chinese five spice, olives). 

​​

Basic Hoummus:

Time to make: 10 minutes

Ingredients

200g drained tin chickpeas

1 tbsp garlic infused oil 

1 tsp cumin powder 

3 tbsp water 

2 tbsp lemon juice 

3 tbsp tahini paste 

Method

1. Combine all ingredients in a food processor and pulse until a smooth paste has formed. 

2. Taste to ensure all combined and add extra ingredients if you feel it’s needed. 

3. Serve with your chosen component (pitta, crackers, crudies). 

I promise it was easy! Happy hoummus making! x
