Why buy hummus? You can make this quick and easy dip in less then 5 minutes at a fraction of the cost, with ingredients you have in your pantry. Great to whip up when unexpected visitors drop by or when you are looking for a healthy snack to accompany your vegetable sticks or crackers.

Ingredients (serves 10)

  • 1 Can of chick peas, drained
  • 2-4 tbsp Water
  • 2 tbsp Extra Virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 1 Glove of garlic, minced
  • 3/4 tsp Ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp Salt


  1. Add the chick peas, 2 tbsp of water, olive oil, lemon juice, garlic, cumin and salt to a food processor.
  2. Process until smooth and creamy. If needed add additional water to thin out the hummus.
  3. Refrigerate until needed and enjoy.

  • Isn’t tahini an integral part of hommus? Not sure about the flavour without tahini, but willing to try it as I don’t often have tahini in the pantry


  • Never made hummus but I love it. Will be trying this ASAP!


  • I love making hummus this sounds like a lovely, simple recipe with great flavour thnks for sharing


  • This would make for a healthy snack, look forward to trying.


  • I usually put in some cloves when I cook them especially here in Bali where the beetroot can be a bit bland!


  • I make hommus from scratch and I love the tahini it gives it depth and a delicious kick I wouldn’t make it without it


  • I love hommus, beats dip ever


  • Oh, I really need to get a food processor to make some of the lovely dip recipes I’m finding. Looks lovely.


  • Easy delightful and delicious. thanks so much.


  • love hommus and when it is so easy to make it your self you can whip it up anytime you have a craving – thanks for your recipe it sounds really good


  • fantastic, thank you! all the shop bought dips have all sorts of nasties & this is fresh & clean.

    • Yes and after I got food poisoning when I was pregnant from eating store bought hummus, I have only ever made my own. :)


  • Thank you – a lovely looking hummus.

    • Will have to make for the weekend hungry tummies.


  • I’ve never tried making hummus without tahini. Does it taste very different?

    • To be honest, not a great deal. My daughter can’t get seseme seeds, so its a regular in our household and when I serve it to visitors they never comment on it “missing” something. Also makes it a budget friendly version of the dip, as the tahini is usually the most expensive ingredient.


  • A tasty dip for when friends drop in,thanks!
