Easy Peasy Hummus

Easy Peasy Hummus

This super tasty dish originates either in Greece or the Middle East - no-one is truly sure, but one thing we know it's seriously tasty and pimps up crudités like nothing else!

You'll always find a tasty option tucked in our deli counter, but making your own requires very few ingredients and can be whipped up in minutes..perfect for those unexpected guests.


  • 400g Can chickpeas (aka garbanzo beans)
  • 3/4 tablespoons tahini (dark or light options available)
  • Olive oil

With just these three you can whip up something perfectly acceptable. However by adding the following you can take the taste up a notch or seven..

  • 2/3 cloves garlic (try our smoked for taste tweak)
  • Lemon juice
  • Cumin
  • Salt

...Quantities on these can be added to taste. 

Bung the lot into the blender, and whhhhiiiizzzzzz. Adding the olive oil until you get a consistency to your liking.

We've heard tips about peeling the chickpeas, allegedly it makes the taste creamier/less bitter but never tried it.

One great tip we have tried is switching the tahini for smooth peanut butter - something we always tucked in our cupboard.
