Homemade hummus is so much tastier than the store bought version and super simple to make.



  • 1 400g tin of chickpeas
  • 2tbsp  olive oil
  • 2tbsp tahini
  • 1/4tsp ground cumin
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled
  • 1tsp salt
  • paprika and olive oil for sprinkling


  1. Pop all of your ingredients in the bowl of a food processor and blitz into a smooth paste. Scoop your hummus out and into a bowl, swirl the top with a spoon for a bit of jazz then drizzle with a little extra oil and sprinkle with paprika.
  2. Serve with veggies, flat breads or whatever you have around.
