Basic Hummus

I’m not much for those food blogs with tonnes of writing about perfect families and picnics and such as I’m just not one of those people. My Instagram wouldn’t make anyone jealous. I foster cats and my house often smells of pee when a “mew” kitty comes into the fold. I live in leggings and need to dye my roots 😂

I do make amazing hummus though, so hopefully you’ll appreciate me jumping straight to this recipe.

  • Chickpeas
  • tahini
  • garlic
  • lemon (zest and whole lemon, pith removed)
  • olive oil
  • water
  • cumin
  • salt

I use my high powered food processor to make my hummus – it’s a magimix 5200XL I highly recommend it if you make hummus or meat analogues a lot.

Put the tahini, garlic, lemon, olive oil, salt, cumin and water into the food processor and run it until everything is smooth.

Add half the chickpeas and blend til smooth, then add the other half and blend until the consistency you require (sometimes I like mine chunky, others I blend it smooth and then add toppings for extra texture.
