CHICKPEAS one can (240g)

TAHINI 1 tablespoon

GARLIC 2 cloves, chopped

LEMON 1, juice and zest (zest optional)

OLIVE OIL 2 tablespoons

WATER 1 tablespoon (more if you need/wish)


Throw all the ingredients together in a food processor and blend. That’s it. Easy. As promised. Salt if you wish but I never bother. Most people tend to adapt basic recipes to suit their tastes. Play around. You can’t go wrong.

Option: to make hummus using fresh chickpeas. Soak chickpeas in water overnight, pressure cook for 45 mins till super soft, use those instead of tinned variety.

Health benefits:

Chickpeas: Plant-based protein, iron 26%, zinc 17%

Tahini: sesame seeds super high in iron 50%, calcium 42%, magnesium 23%, protein and vitamin E

Will last one week tops in the fridge. But it won’t last at all as it will be eaten.

Bon appetit!
