Healthy Hummus Recipe



  1. Put the chickpeas, tahini, yoghurt, garlic, salt, lemon juice and any optional extras such as roasted red pepper or cumin into a food processor or blender***
  2. Blend! And if you would like a smoother hummus then add 1-2 tbsp of the chickpea water at a time until you reach your desired consistency.
  3. Serve with raw carrot batons or toasted pitta bread and enjoy!


*Keep some of the chickpea water for a smoother consistency. You could also try swapping 1/2 of the chickpeas for white beans (cannellini beans) for a slightly different taste/texture.

**If you can't find tahini paste (some supermarkets don't stock it, you can use 2 tbsp of sesame oil)

**I use [this blender] from Sage!
