Hummus must be one of the most widely-loved dips in the world – it’s full of fantastic plant-based protein, it’s nut-free, dairy-free, gluten-free, and it’s loved by children and adults alike. It is also so easy to make at home and takes less than 5 minutes!
Put all the ingredients in a food processor. Whizz until it gets to the consistency you like. Add more or less lemon juice depending on your taste. (Thermomix: 1 min / gradually increase from sp. 1-8. Scrape down with a spatula. Then 1 min. / gradually increase from sp. 1-8.)
Serve drizzled with olive oil and a sprinkling of ground sumac or za’atar if you like.
Be careful with the salt! Hummus needs salt to bring out the flavours but all salt is different so how much you need depends on the saltiness of your salt! Start with half the amount and work up from there.
If the hummus is too thick (all tins of chickpeas are slightly different) just add lemon juice or water (according to your taste).
Adding black garlic paste instead of the garlic clove takes this hummus to a new dimension and it's easier too!
