Houmous! Houmous! Houmous!

Simple, delicious, and very cheap to make, it's well worth making this vegan staple yourself as you can tweak the recipe to make it exactly how you like it.

  • 400g/1 can of ready cooked chickpeas, washed & drained
  • 2 teaspoons of tahini
  • 1 large lemon, juiced
  • 1 tablespoon of olive oil
  • 1 handful of fresh coriander leaves
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1 teaspoon of sesame seeds 
  1. Place most of the chickpeas in a bowl (if using a stick blender or masher), or food processor, leaving a few to one side to use as a garnish
  2. Add the tahini, lemon juice, half the olive oil, garlic, coriander, and salt and mix well
  3. Blend until smooth
  4. Have a taste, adding more lemon juice, garlic, and/or salt if needed
  5. Transfer to a serving dish, garnishing with the remaining chickpeas, olive oil, sesame seeds and a sprig of coriander/parsley 
  6. Serve as you wish - personally I love it with falafel in a a homemade bun or wrap
