Classic Creamy Hummus [SUPER SIMPLE]

simple classic hummus recipe

Delicious creamy homemade hummus with a touch of paprika and cumin!

So, I don’t know about you, but I am OBSESSED with hummus.

I always have a tub of it in my fridge and used to go through a tub of shop bought hummus every other day!

However, soon realised how easy it is to make at home and wish I found out a looong time ago.

Not only do I save money by making it my hummus at home, it’s so much tastier AND you can make it exactly how you like it. Furthermore, you can also cut down your plastic usage – it’s a no brainer!

Of course hummus makes the perfect snack for dipping your favourite crudities in, but it also makes an amazing ingredient in a whole range of meals!!

I use hummus in heaps of recipes, including my ‘Rosemary & Chilli Hummus Linguine’ and my Hummus Pizza Puffs. See pics below 🙂 

It takes just 5 minutes to whip up and you get nearly double the amount you get in the little shop bought pots.

My recipe contains more than your average amount of extra virgin olive oil but I think it tastes sooooo much better and it’s creamier!!

If you want to make your hummus a little healthier, you can substitute some olive oil for water.

You can keep it in an air tight container in the fridge for up 3-5 days.

Give it a go and let me know how you get on 🙂
