Shop bought hummus can be very varied from grainy mush to over powering flavours. This is a great mild gluten free hummus recipe that should suit most tastes.

Cooking with Kids?

This is a great recipe to make with children. Get them to help with the weighing and measuring. Kids love to whizz things up in the processor. Just ensure caution is taken when placing ingredients in the processor to avoid the blades.

Is it Vegan?

This recipe is suitable for people following a gluten free diet and a vegan diet.

Do I need any specialist equipment?

I would recommend a food processor, for getting a creamy texture, but it can be made using a masher or a fork to break up the chickpeas.

This recipe is a gluten free and vegan recipe that takes less than 10 minutes to make. It’s quick and easy, but the taste is anything but!

Add in all of the ingredients to a food processor or blender. Blend until smooth. Taste and adjust seasonings as needed. Serve with celery, carrots, or chips for dipping! Enjoy!
