Chickpea Hummus

Hummus is a wonderfully nutritious food, being incredibly rich in protein, vitamins and minerals. Pair it with our new Activated Dukkah Crackers for a delicious protein packed snack. 


3½ cups cooked or canned chickpeas 

¾ cup chickpea cooking water or chickpea tin water 

3 tbsp tahini

½ cup cold-pressed olive oil

½ lemon, peeled ¼ cup lemon juice

2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed

1 tsp sea salt

1 tsp cumin powder

To serve (optional)

1 tsp cold-pressed olive oil

½ tsp paprika


If cooking your chickpeas, rinse and drain chickpeas well, place in a saucepan and cover generously with water. Bring to the boil over a medium to high heat, then reduce the heat, cover with a lid and allow to simmer for 1 hour or until tender. Drain, saving the liquid.

Place cooked chickpeas in a food processor with remaining ingredients. Process well until smooth and creamy, adding any additional salt, lemon or tahini to taste.

For a little extra flavour, you can serve with a drizzle of olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika.

This will keep in a glass jar in the fridge for up to 1 week (I find it keeps better in glass rather than plastic).
