Hummus, Homous or Humous its our favourite!


  • 400g can chickpeas, drained 
  • 80ml extra virgin olive oil   
  • 1-2 fat garlic cloves, peeled and crushed 
  • 1 lemon, juiced then ½ zested 
  • 3 tbsp tahini  
  • Mixed crudités and toasted pitta bread, to serve (optional) 


  • STEP 1 

Thoroughly rinse the chickpeas in a colander under cold running water. Tip into the large bowl of a food processor along with 60ml of the oil and blitz until almost smooth. Add the garlic, lemon and tahini along with 30ml water. Blitz again for about 5 mins, or until the hummus is smooth and silky. 

  • STEP 2 

Add 20ml more water, a little at a time, if it looks too thick. Season and transfer to a bowl. Swirl the top of the hummus with the back of a dessert spoon and drizzle over the remaining oil. Serve with crunchy crudités and toasted pitta bread, if you like. 

Ramadan Mubarak, enjoy!
