Easy Classic Hummus Recipe

Easy Classic Hummus Recipe

There's nothing better than creamy, nutty, velvety homemade hummus?

Although there are amny variations of hummus to be made, once you have the basics down the sky's the limit only bound by your creativity!

With just 5 minutes of prep and a few basic ingredients you have the perfect snack, appetiser or side dish. It’s lusciously smooth, with a zing of lemon and a little kick from the garlic. This really is a simple adaptable recipe!

What if I don't have tahini? 

Although tahini really adds that classic touch to the overall flavour and there are some great products to be found online, one of my favourites is from The Fresh Olive Company however, if you don't have any or can't source any locally you can just omit it.

Can I use dried chickpeas insted of tinned?

The simple answer is yes! However, they will need to be cooked so make sure to soak them ahead of time, and let them boil for a bit longer than you normally would, until they become mushy, soft & creamy.


This recipe is just a guideline to a classic traditional style hummus but have a play around and adjust it to suit your taste/preference. Love garlic? Add more, or use roasted garlic. Like your hummus with more texture...then use less water as you blend.



Hummus Serving Suggestions.

Once you have your hummus on hand in the fridge, you'll find all sorts of ways to eat it besides straight off the spoon!

Here are a couple of my favourites...

  • With crudites to dip, serve as part of a platter or on their own as a healthier snack option.
  • Scoop it up with a freshly toasted pita.
  • Use it sandwiches as a spread to take your lunch to the next level.
  • Load it up! Top your hummus with fresh tomato, olives, cucumber, herbs and feta and scoop it up with fresh bread or slather it onto a crostini.
