For those of you who live in Singapore like us you will appreciate just how expensive Hommus can be to buy in the shops! After 2 years of spending what is probably hundreds of pounds on Hommus we finally decided that enough was enough and that we needed to start making our own! We also realised that a lot of the Hommus you can buy, however tasty, has a least one unknown chemical ingredient on the label or it is full of added salt, sugar etc.
We found this recipe and I have to say it is so easy, quick, inexpensive and very tasty! You literally just put all the ingredients in a blender and there you are!
- 400g tin of chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
- 2 tbsp of lemon juice
- 1-2 tbsp of extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tsp of cumin
- handful of fresh coriander (optional)
- 2 garlic cloves
- Salt and pepper to taste
Enjoy with chopped crudities (peppers, broccoli, celery or carrots)
