Hummus or houmous for your meze platter

Homemade hummus



Yield 200 g

This recipe is super healthy as I serve my hummus with crudities (just raw carrot and cucumber batons or slices) and just 1 tortilla or flatbread (toast them lightly). As there is no cooking involved, try to source good quality chickpeas and unrefined oil.


To make just over 200 g of hummus:

To serve:


Make sure your chickpeas are thoroughly rinsed and drained before doing anything else. If there are some outer skins, they are not to be in your hummus so you'd need to discard them. Most of canned chickpeas do not contain outer layer but if you decided to cook your chickpeas from scratch, that will be your other task to do.

After that it could not be easier - simply put all your ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth. I don't like it overly smooth, so tiny grains are fine, but no big lumps please.

Transfer to your serving bowl, warm up tortillas, chop your carrots and cucumber into batons and serve.
