Recipe: Spicy Chickpea Dip

Hummus recipes tend to use Tahini, but this simple alternative works just as well. Serve with breadsticks, toast or flatbreads.

Cooking Time: No cooking, just blending.


  • 1 tin of 200g chickpeas, drained
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 40mls of olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon of curry powder or cumin
  • 1 clove of garlic or ½ teaspoon garlic powder
  • Pinch of salt


Blend everything together in a food processor. Add more water if you like a thinner dip.

If you do not have a processor mash everything with a potato masher. It may be a chunkier texture this way.

Hummus is a popular Middle Eastern Dip that makes a quick and healthy snack
