Best Ever Hummus

Best ever hummus recipeI love hummus. In the UK I would also have a pots in the fridge which I would buy from the supermarket. In Norway hummus isn’t available in supermarkets so I have to make my own. I would sometimes make my own in the UK but always preferred the supermarket version. I have been practicing for a while now and think I have come up with a great recipe.
Most recipes for homemade hummus don’t have enough liquid in them so tend to be quite dry and course, this has more to get that creamy texture.

I eat hummus with lots of things, traditionally with falafels and pitta breads, as a dip for crisps and vegetables or as a side with salads. I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as I do!



  • 1 tin cooked chickpeas
  • 2 tsp tahini
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 5 tbsp water
  • 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  1. Place all of the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until smooth.

Enjoy! H x
