Easy Homemade Hummus

Clean-eating hummus is easily made using store-cupboard staples. Chickpeas are low in fat and contain plenty of protein, fibre, manganese and folate. Homemade hummus is also usually lower in salt than commercial brands and it makes a cheap, filling lunch when combined with vegetable crudités or toasted wholemeal pitta bread.


  1. Drain the chick peas, reserving the liquid in a jug.
  2. Add the chick peas, garlic, tahini, 1 tbsp lemon juice, olive oil, cumin and salt into a blender and process until smooth.
  3. Reduce the processor speed to low and add a tbsp at a time of the reserved chick pea liquid until the desired consistency is achieved.
  4. Taste the hummus and add more lemon juice and salt if required.
