Delicious Houmous, (hummus, hoummos, hummus, humus, hommos! ) Dip Recipe

On googling the spelling of this recipe, I truly discovered all of these ways to spell it. 
(houmous, hummus, hoummos, hummus, humus, hommos)
I'm sure there must be even more...

Over the last couple of years I've finally perfected my version of this favourite recipe, for many people around the world.
I have even written myself a note saying 
"Aleta, do NOT mess with this perfect recipe"

Our delicious Houmous Dip Recipe
400g tin drained chickpeas
1t unhulled tahini paste
1T olive oil
1 1/2 garlic cloves
1t sesame oil
freshly squeezed juice of half a lemon (about 1/4 cup)
1/8t cayenne pepper
1/8t paprika
1/4t cumin powder
    - - -
freshly ground black pepper
Himalayan rock salt

Place ALL ingredients in the blender and blitz to desired consistency. 
Season to taste.
Serve with favourite plain crackers or pitta bread.

(Yes, that's it! 
Quick AND Easy)

Ingredients I use in this timeless recipe.
I'm sure one reason the kids like to help with this one,
is to 'get the bowl' at the end!

I would love to know what you think.



  1. In a minute, after pressing PRINT, I shall write a note that says:

    "Tania, do NOT mess with this perfect recipe"

    (thank you)...

  2. Yum yum indeed, great recipe xxx

  3. Hee Hee!
    Maybe try it first Tania...it's perfect for US...though everyone does seem to like this combination.
    Thanks for dropping in!

  4. I agree, Anna and Mellie. This dip is indeed, "Yum!".
    Thanks for commenting!

  5. It's almost the same as mine just with added cayenne which I don't like! Although I am a bit of an ad libber and it turns out different each time, mostly it turns out yummy!! Just like yours!

  6. Hee hee. I take that as another vote for Delicious then Evi?!
    All the boys in my family like a lot of bite in their dishes, I'm often out-voted. However, when I thought of including the cayenne, I was impressed to find it really just strengthened the garlic flavour (I LOVE garlic!)

  7. I love Hummus, thanks for the recipe!

    Blessings, Debbie
