Hummus is another fantastic use of the chickpea.
You can used the tinned chickpeas or the soak and boil method for dry beans.
I used some chickpeas that I have soaked overnight then boiled.
I took 1 1/2 cups chick peas
2 cloves of garlic
juice of 1 lemon
2 TBSP Tahini
salt and pepper
1/2 tsp ground cumin
3 TBSP water
First of all take the chickpeas if you use the canned ones be sure to rinse them.
add everything except the water and lemon juice to the food processor or blender
Puree till blended probably close to 3 mins or so to make it as smooth as you wish.
taste then add salt and pepper lemon juice and water then blend again till smooth and your ideal consistency if you want it thinner add more water.
- I also added in a cooked finely diced beetroot and blended up to create a beetroot hummus.
- you can also roast carrots and add them in.
- roasted butternut squash can also be added to make squash hummus. Get creative and have fun with mixing it up!
- You could also add turmeric to create a delicious snack
So there you go the possibility’s with Hummus are endless, loads of fresh vegetables to dip in, crusty bread, used it on your wraps or sandwiches.
Chickpeas are rich in fibre and protein so get them in your belly!

love always and happy hummus!
