Master the basics
Authentic homemade houmous is surprisingly simple to make. You’ll need six key ingredients: chickpeas, garlic, tahini (sesame paste, which gives the dip its toasty, nutty flavour), lemon juice, olive oil and salt. Simply blitz in a blender or food processor and you’re set; for a thicker mix, add more chickpeas and for a richer finish, up the tahini or oil to taste. Our secret tip – add a splash of water to the blended houmous for a light and fluffy finish.
