1 tin of chick peas – keep the juice and a spoonful of chickpeas aside)
1 table spoon tahini
1 tsp cumin
Juice of half a lemon

Olive oil

Purée garlic 1/4 tsp to taste
Sea salt to taste


To jazz it up add anything you fancy, I love these flavours:

2 tsp Harissa – to taste


Olive tapenade 2 tsp to taste

Blended beetroot

  • Place all basic houmous ingredients into the blender except for the juice of the houmous and the olive oil.
  • These can be drizzled in to loosen the paste.
  • I like to add in the whole chickpeas after I’ve done the blending


Adding a topping of your choice can create so many different houmous tastes.
