About this recipe: Houmous gets a flavour boost thanks to parsley and spring onion. It's also super easy - everything goes into the food processor. Vary the flavour by adding a few chopped mint leaves, a little fresh ginger or dried chillies.


Serves: 24 

  • 2 (400g) tins chickpeas, drained
  • 7 tablespoons tahini
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest, minced
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • handful flat leaf parsley
  • 4 spring onions, chopped
  • salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Prep:10min  ›  Ready in:10min 

  1. Place chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, lemon zest, garlic, parsley and spring onions in the bowl of a food processor. Blend until smooth, adding water if the mixture is too thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Something else. Houmous without olive oil or cumin? Nope, doesn't work. Add up to 4 tbsp of olive oil and 1/2 tsp of cumin to this recipe, and I'll change my rating to 5 stars. Adding water to this recipe is not "optional" either. About 4 tbsp will be right. Don't add in the "reserved" bean juice. Drain and rinse those beans to get rid of the extra sugars. - 24 Jul 2008


Something else. I made this hummus for a kid's b-day party and everybody loved it!!! I made it using a hand chopper leaving it rather chunky and much more flavourful than other creamier recipes. - 24 Jul 2008


This recipe is the BEST to date! I made a batch, and we ate it for lunches for a week. Spread it on a toasted pita bread, dip tortilla chips or carrot sticks in it. Any way, it is just divine. It is packed with nutrition too! My two year old daughter LOVES it (and she's the pickiest eater I know). I love being able to add what I like to it. A little lemon juice and garlic makes it delicious! Great recipe, very easy, very kid-friendly. - 24 Jul 2008
