5-minute hummus, so simple and super quick to make.

Who doesn’t like some creamy smooth hummus with some nachos or grilled flatbread as a mezze starter?

Great with my best Tabbouleh salad or Spicy beef samosas.

A simple blend of chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, yogurt, olive oil and salt and pepper.

You can use dried chickpeas soaked for 24 hours which will give you a smoother hummus. I use canned chickpeas for a quicker option. Use a strong blender to smooth out the chickpeas while blending.

I like to heat the grated garlic in a little water and olive oil to bring out the flavour of the garlic and not be as harsh in garlic flavour.

Drain the chickpeas, add the warm olive oil & garlic with the tahini, yoghurt, lemon juice and salt and pepper. Blend until super smooth. You can serve straight away, though it is best made the day before or a few hours before to firm up in the refrigerator.

Serve with a platter of vegetable crudites on a hot summer day for a healthier option. Crunchy carrots, peppers, cucumber, celery, asparagus, radish and tomatoes are great with hummus. I also serve a tuna mayonnaise dip with crudites too. Delicious.
