Indian Spiced Hummus

IMG_3604I’ve been a huge fan of hummus for a long time, but I’ve only recently realised how much nicer home-made hummus is, and how quick and easy it is to make it. I played around with the flavours of conventional hummus and came up with this incredible aromatic version. If you want regular hummus, leave out the turmeric, lime, and coriander, and add a clove of garlic.


1 200g tin of chickpeas (drained)

1 tbsp tahini

5 tbsp olive oil

1 tsp cumin

1/2 tsp turmeric

1 handful of fresh coriander

Juice of 1/2 a lime

Salt and pepper

Add all of the ingredients to a food processor and blend on high speed. Every 5-10 seconds, stop and scrape down the sides. Continue blending until its smooth, add a little water if it’s a bit thick. This should keep in the fridge for about 5 days. IMG_3598
