You can make your own delicious, customized hummus in under 10 minutes.
Hummus is just about the best thing there is. It magically transforms a dry falafel wrap and goes with just about anything. It even makes chopped up bits of raw veg look appetizing.
If you’re a hummus fan already, you probably don’t need any more convincing. The trouble is that buying it in the store can be pricey, especially if you get through a tub as quickly as I do. The good news is that you can make hummus from scratch that is not only far cheaper but far tastier than store-bought tubs.
Hummus is made from chickpeas so to make the most basic version of it, all you need to do is buy a can of chickpeas, drain them and then blend, blend, blend. Add 3 tbsp of oil and salt and pepper to taste then blend again until it’s perfectly smooth. It should take about 5 minutes on full blast to get all the chunks out.
You can add pretty much anything you like to the mix to make it more exciting. I personally like to add a couple of tablespoons of tahini or blend in some roasted pepper with paprika. Once you’ve mastered classic, plain hummus, the sky is the limit.
