Easy homemade hummus

I find myself having ‘restaurant envy’ over my pre-schooler’s friends lunchbox and rush home to make my own creamy homemade hummus. Forgot how good the home made stuff really is! It really is super healthy and a perfect addition to a lunchbox too.

My creamy homemade hummus served with vegetable sticks


15 oz (425g) can of garbanzo beans (chick peas), drained and rinsed

3 fl oz (75ml) tahini

1 tablespoon olive oil (start with this and add more to taste if necessary)

1 clove garlic, crushed

3-4 tablespoons greek (or plain) yoghurt

juice of 1 lemon

1 fl oz (25ml) water

salt and pepper

paprika to garnish

How to make

1. Add all of the ingredients together in a bowl. Blend (I use a hand held blender)

2. Chill for 20mins, sprinkle with paprika and enjoy


I’ve linked this recipe to Amy Green’s Slightly Indulgent Tuesdays.
