Everyone likes hummus right?

Great for plummeting sticks of veg into or spreading generously over bread, but do you normally buy the readymade stuff from the shop?

If you do, don’t! Instead, make it yourself you’ll never go back to shop bought I promise.


  • 400 g tin of chickpeas, drained but reserve the juices.

  • 2 tbsps of tahini paste.

  • 3 garlic cloves.

  • 1 lemon, juice.

  • 2 tbsps of extra-virgin olive oil, plus a little extra for garnish.

  • 1 pinch of smoked paprika.

  • Fresh parsley.


  1. Place all the ingredients into a food blender, but keep a few chickpeas to one side for garnishing. Add a good pinch of salt and a little of the reserved chickpea juices. Whizz till you get a nice smooth consistency or till however, you like it. The best thing to do is just keep checking and adjusting the houmous, if you like it more garlicky add more, add more lemon juice etc just tailor it to your taste.

  2. Once you are happy with your houmous pour out into a bowl and garnish with the leftover chickpeas, give it a drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil, A little sprinkle of smoked paprika and a few fresh parsley leaves.
