Are you trying to turn me into a vegan?

I discovered hummus when I first moved to London. And I was an instant convert! I mean it’s creamy, yumlicious, oh so satisfying and goes well with everything… bread, carrots, cucumber, radishes, apples, pitta bread, celery…. I have always loved chick peas and I often make them using my mom’s delicious recipe. However, coming back to the recipe for making hummus, it’s really easy and you can serve it as starter or make a light lunch with lots of veggies. It’s always a party favourite and since it’s so quick to make, I make it fresh just before guests arrive. Let’s hum, people!

Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 5 minutes
Total Time 10 minutes
Servings 4 people
Calories/Serving 25kcal


  • 300 gram canned chickpeas
  • 2 tbsp. tahini lighter coloured tahini is delicate and the darker tahini has a strong taste; I like them both
  • 1/2 fresh lime or lemon juice
  • 2-3 cloves garlic peeled
  • Salt to taste
  • 1 tsp olive
  • 1/4 tsp red chili powder


  • Strain the chickpeas and set aside the water and handful of chick peas for garnishing.
  • Mix together chickpeas, garlic, lemon/lime juice, salt and tahini and half of the water from the can.
  • Grind in a blender until it's smooth and creamy. If  the hummus is too thick add more liquid from the can.
  • Empty the mix into a bowl and drizzle with olive oil and chili powder. Garnish with chickpeas.
  • Serve with sliced vegetables and fruits.


The recipe is better with organic canned chickpeas or chick peas cooked at home, which is super easy.
