Quick and easy houmous!


This one doesn’t have any tahini so maybe isn’t strictly houmous, but it is very houmous-like! It has a lot less oil than shop bought and most standard houmous recipes.


1 x 400g can chickpeas

Jar of grilled peppers

Squeeze of lemon juice (I keep fresh lemon juice in ice cube trays in the freezer)

Clove of garlic (again – I use frozen chopped garlic for speed)


Drain the chickpeas and tip into a food processor.

Add a few peppers, lemon juice and garlic. Blitz for a few seconds. Scrape the sides down with a spatula and blitz again until smooth.

Feel free to add more lemon juice and a splash of water. 

Season with black pepper.
