In an effort to add more protein to my diet, we have started making hummus each week.  I eat it for breakfast with my vegetables.  I have not listed quantities for the ingredients as this is very much by taste.  Each week it tastes difference - heavy garlic one week, strong lemon flavour the next.  All of them are good though.


  • Chickpeas
  • Garlic (fresh or powdered)
  • Cayenne Pepper
  • Tahini
  • Lemon Juice
  • Olive Oil
  • Water (if needed)

  1. Soak the chickpeas in cool water over night
  2. Cook the chickpeas in water until tender, approx 1 hour (if you don't pre-soak them, cook for approx 2.5 hours),drain well and cool to room temperature (can also be cooked the day before and kept in the fridge)
  3. Add all ingredients to food processor
  4. Blend until well mixed and desired consistency
  5. If it's to thick and dry, add water, 1 Tbsp at a time
