Hummus is a popular food dip or spread from the Middle East and is believed to have originated in Lebanon or Egypt. Basically it’s a very tasty chickpea mash with herbs and spices added. We just love to snack away hummus on fluffy Turkish flatbread in the weekends, that’s why we make hummus ourselves. It’s really easy and you can customize it the way you like it!

Homemade hummus is a great alternative to storebought hummus. I agree that the storebought stuff most of the times is really tasty, but why not make it yourself? You can add whatever you like, play with the herbs and spices to create the flavour you want…and it’s way cheaper of course. We usually buy a large bag of dry chickpeas, which makes it really cheap, but you have to let them soak overnight before you can use them. The quickest way would be to buy canned chickpeas, you can mash these to hummus immediately.

How to make hummus

This recipe will only take you about 10 minutes when your chickpeas are soaked or when you use the canned ones. There are many recipes available because everyone makes it to their own taste. We use ingredients that are used in a traditional hummus and we love it this way, but as I said before you can play with the amounts to create your favorite taste. In traditional recipes often ‘tahini’ is used, this is a sesame paste with a lot of flavor. We used a tablespoon of sesame oil instead of tahini. This works perfectly fine to get the taste, since we use Greek yogurt this hummus will be nice and creamy and not too oily.


Last week I posted a recipe for Baba Ganoush, another lovely food dip made from eggplants roasted in the oven. See that Baba Ganoush recipe here.

    I’m with you on the hummus. Love it and homemade is always better. I’ve never added yoghurt to it though, so that’s got me thinking.

      Thanks so much. Yogurt makes it a little more creamy and smooth
