Recipe: Hummus Dip

Hummus – a delicious and high nutrient rich dip! It’s the arabic word for chick peas – a staple ingredient that has been cultivated through the Middle East for thousands of years. Originating in Ancient Eygpt, this classic dip is now a staple in many households around the world and often seen incorporated in dishes across many cafes and restaurant menus.

You can’t go past a weekend cocktail paired with freshly made hummus. And with World Hummus Day on Friday, what better way to pay homage than to make a batch to share with friends this weekend!

The key to a soft of light hummus is a fresh tahini like Yalla – use it to dip a crisp cracker into, as a butter substitute, or to liven up a salad. Our recipe is fail-proof – you’ll have perfect hummus, every time!


You’ll need:
600g can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 garlic cloves, crushed
100ml olive oil
2 tablespoons fresh tahini
1 lemon, juiced
1/2 teaspoon cumin

Place all ingredients in a blender and process until smooth. If you prefer a lighter hummus, then gradually add a little warm water into your blended mix.
Serve with crackers or crudité, your favourite weekend beverage and enjoy!
