Simple ‘Mexican Hummus’ Recipe

I know that lemon humous is really refreshing with salad on hot days but for anyone experiencing cold or cloudy weather, here is some spicy ‘comfort hummus’.

200g Chickpeas (standard tin when drained but save water for later)

1 small Lime

1 teaspoons of Garlic Paste

1 teaspoons Ground Cumin (not essential)

100ml Tahini

5 tablespoons Chickpea Water

4 tablespoons Virgin Olive Oil

2 teaspoons Smoked Paprika

1 1/2 Pinches ( measuring spoon ‘pinch’) of Salt

1 Pinch of Sugar


Chuck everything into a blender and blend until smooth.

Scrape hummus of the blender and put into a container, which will take longer than making the actual humous!

To Serve

With bean falafel, roasted yellow peppers and tomatoes, warm pita, crackers, bread sticks or biscuits. Basically anything that’s heavy on the carbs or your version of comfort food.


Do you have your own version of hummus?
