Lebanese Hummus recipe

This simple hummus recipe is fantastic for serving with some crunchy vegetable crudites or some pitta breads. You could also smear it on a wrap before piling high with chicken and salad as it will provide a creamy base that works well in bringing lots of different flavours together.


  • 1 400g tin of chickpeas, drained
  • 4 tbsp. sesame oil
  • Garlic cloves to taste
  • Lemon juice to taste
  • Salt and pepper

Method of Preparation:

  1. Rinse the chickpeas and either mash or blend until smooth. Stir in the oil.

  2. Mince a few garlic cloves and stir in. If you like it very garlicky, add more.

  3. Juice a lemon and add this. Again, if you think it needs more lemon juice, add more.

  4. Season well and chill in the fridge before serving.

To make this hummus look a little more presentable before serving, swirl a little more sesame oil over the top and dot with a few roasted chickpeas. This recipe serves four people.
