Hummus (Jamie Oliver’s, adapted)


Basic houmous, adapted from Jamie Oliver’s.

400g cooked chickpeas
4 tsp tahini (I substituted with 3 tsp peanut butter and 1 tsp sesame oil)
2 garlic cloves, crushed (I used only one–I’ve used two before, it was too overpowering, I think)
1 tsp sea salt
6 tbsp olive oil
3 1/2 tbsp lemon juice

Put all the ingredients together, blitz, store in a jar and keep in the refrigerator.

I prepared my own chickpeas by soaking them overnight, then giving them a rapid boil for 15 minutes, after which I left them in the slow cooker overnight.

For the tahini substitute–I probably could go as far as 2 tsp sesame oil if I want a stronger sesame taste, but not more than that. I substituted with sesame oil alone before (no peanut butter), and ‘have found it overpowering.

I learned this time by not putting coarse salt–I thought I’d break my food processor last time!

  1. Looks like quite the success! What starch or veggie do you eart your hummus with?
    I’ve been meaning to try my hand at making a hummus recipe too! My friend is Lebanese and makes the best hummus I’ve ever eaten in my life.
    All I gotta do is re-make it lol.

    • I usually have it with crackers, or as dip for tortilla chips 🙂 I’ll be looking forward to when you post your/your friend’s hummus recipe, Dana!
