Homemade Hummus

I love hummus. It’s great with nachos, carrot sticks, cucumber, with falafel, in a kebab, I could go on! But sometimes it can be hard to buy a decent one. Often I end up picking up one with bits in it or unblended chickpeas, or one that tastes really salty. Recently I tried to make my own. It was easier than I thought and tasted great! Give it a go and have yourself some Fork ‘N Tasty Hummus!


  • 1 tin of chickpeas, drained but keep the liquid
  • 2 tablespoons of tahini
  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled
  • Juice from 1 lemon
  • Teaspoon of cumin
  • Teaspoon of paprika
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. You’ll need a blender of this one. Put everything into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. That’s it! If you find it is struggling to blend add in some of the chickpea water to loosen things up.
  2. Taste it and add more seasoning if you need to. A little more salt and pepper or lemon juice can make all the difference. Dress with some parsley and a dash of paprika if you like.
