More delicious than shop-bought hummus and cheaper too – you’ll love it so much you’ll never buy hummus again!

Makes plenty to enjoy over a few days – add to salad bowls, dollop on pasta, stir into risottos and of course, use as a dip.

HERE’S WHAT YOU’RE GOING TO LOVE ABOUT THIS SMOKY HOMEMADE HUMMUS

  • Super easy
  • Ready in 10 minutes
  • Versatile
  • Perfectly spiced
  • Smooth and creamy
  • Vegan and gluten-free

Using these 6 core ingredients you’ll either have already or can easily get from most supermarkets. 

Hummus IngredientsMade with 6 ingredients: canned chickpeas, extra virgin olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and smoked paprika plus salt and pepper.

Simple swaps

  • Omit the garlic and add 1 tsp finely chopped red chilli
  • Use ground coriander or cumin instead of the smoked paprika
  • Try lime juice instead of the lemon juice
  • Choose hot smoked paprika for a spicy flavour or sweet smoked paprika for a milder spice hit
  • Instead of extra virgin olive oil use a flavoured herb oil such as rosemary or basil

ingredients for blender

Simply place all the ingredients in a food processor and whizz. 

If you don’t have a food processor, use a potato masher to mash all the ingredients together – the hummus will have a coarser texture but be just as tasty!

Blended hummus

One of the advantages of making your own gluten-free, vegan hummus is that you can blend it to get just the consistency that you prefer. Add a little water for the smoothest texture.

This quantity makes 10 servings – I always make a large batch as it keeps well in the fridge and can be used in so many ways.

My homemade hummus is so much more than a dip!

Try it spread on crackers, dolloped on toast, added to salads or stirred into pasta, risottos or soup.
