Homemade Houmus

24th August 2013

With summer in full swing we are more inclined to eat outdoors and enjoy cold foods such as salads or sliced vegetables. So what better to accompany such meals than a hommade and very simple Houmus dip?

Why not have a go at this recipe and let us know how you got on?


1 x 400g can chickpeas, don't drain

1 tbsp tahini paste

1 fat garlic clove, chopped

3 tbsp 0% fat Greek yogurt

Good squeeze lemon juice


Drain the chickpeas into a sieve set over a bowl or jug to catch the liquid. Tip the chickpeas, tahini, garlic and yogurt into a food processor or blender and whizz to smooth. Whizz in a tbsp of the chickpea liquid at a time until you have a nice consistency, then scrape into a bowl, stir in a squeeze of lemon juice and season to taste.
