  • Blender or food processor


  • 400 g cooked chickpeas rinsed and drained if you're using the canned variety
  • 2 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons water
  • 4 garlic cloves crushed
  • 1 red chilli finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons jalapenos finely chopped
  • large pinch dried chilli flakes


  • Put all the ingredients into a blender then whizz until it forms a smooth consistency. That's it! Super simple. If you prefer your hummus coarse, don't blend for as long. If you like ultra smooth hummus, blend for longer.
  • I've sprinkled some hot paprika on the top to give it a lift when it's on the table, ready for dipping.
