Hummus-so easy to make!

Jump to recipe

A classic Middle Eastern spread, traditional hummus is a purée of chickpeas flavored with garlic, lemon juice, tahini (sesame paste) and olive oil.

In Dubai, it was no problem to get my hummus fix in any supermarket or restaurant- but back here in Europe? I mean, unless you go to hummus bar or a restaurant which is famous for it. Sure. Perfect. But the ones in a supermarket are actually not what I experienced as tasty Hummus.

Is hummus easy to make?

Then I remembered a friend of mine, who always told me how easy it actually is to make this amazing dip. And I made the mistake of not believing her until last year. And believe me when I tell you how easy it is to make!

Simply add all ingredients in a food processor and blend it until smooth. That’s it!

And if you cover it in a bit of oil and leave it covered in the fridge, it actually lasts quite a few days. Well, if you haven’t eaten it already 🙂

And if you feel adventurous, why not try this beloved dip made with beetroot?

Generally served as a dip, it works just as well paired with some Shawarma, flatbread or served with a selection of colourful raw vegetable sticks. One of my favourite lunches, actually. I always use carrots, celeriac & cucumber and sometimes some little pretzels as well.

I have some left, what else can I make with it?

Another Food for days Idea! Why don’t you make a Chickpea Salad with Hummus? It’s super easy, tasty and filling.
