My Special Hummus

Ok, ok, you must be thinking, EVERYONE knows how to make hummus. But I promise you my special hummus recipe is really a game changer! The secret to it is simply adding some of my favourite spices! And what's not to like about the good old hummus right?! It's such a versatile thing to have in your fridge. Top it up on your favourite salad, serve it as a dip for raw (or roasted) veggies, as a starter with some pitta bread or crackers, or just simply add to your favourite rice dish to add creaminess (never thought of that one huh?). Anywayssss lets get to it:


1 can chickpeas (keep the water)

1 tblsp tahini

3 tblsp olive oil

1/2 lemon juice

1 tsp cinnamon

1 tsp cumin

1 tsp smoked paprika

Salt & Pepper to taste


1 handful toasted pumpkin seeds (optional)

1/2 deseeded pomegranate


With a hand blender mix all the ingredients but the smoked paprika. You MUST use the water in the chickpea can as well. Mix it very well for a few minutes until it's absolutely smooth! Before serving sprinkle the smoked paprika, pumpkin seeds, pomegranate and extra olive oil on top. Enjoy!
