Hummus is one of my favourite snacks of all time, and same goes for the kids. So simple and fast to make (10 minutes!) you can make the hummus up for a homework brain-food treat or make it a day in advance for a sandwich or lunch box dip.

  • So many different hummus recipes. Haven’t managed to match my favorite store bought one, so will give this a go, as a little different.


  • I have only made hommus with tahini paste that is sometimes hard to find in supermarkets so using just raw sesame seeds that I always have on hand will be easier! Thanks for the recipe!


  • Mmm, love the sound of this dip, yum~

  • I love eating hummus with papadams too. This is my favourite dip and you can put it in kids lunch boxes with veggie sticks. Or you can use it in sandwiches/wraps. I love it as a dressing in salad!


  • Mmmm, I love hummus and always make it myself.

    • I use tahini instead of sesame seeds btw and at least 4 cloves of garlic on 2 tins of chick peas and !! Lol, we love garlic !
