Homemade Hummus

I couldn't find any tahini in the shop, so decided to just get a load of sesame seeds and make my own. Also, I put small red pepper in there to sweeten it up. I got given a new blender for Christmas, and wanted to try it out, so this went down will with some cheese and onion bread. Really easy to make with a good blender.

Recipe for the Tahini
  • 2 tablespoons Sesame Seeds
  • Half teaspoon Sesame Oil
  • Few tablespoons Tepid Water

Blitz the sesame seeds in the blender, then add the other ingredients, adding the water until you have a thin paste.

Recipe for the Hummus
  • 400g can of Chickpeas
  • Juice of a Lemon
  • 2-3 tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 4 cloves of Garlic, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon Paprika
  • 1 small Red pepper, de-seeded, de-veined and chopped
  • Salt and Pepper

Add the Chickpeas to the tahini in the blender and blend until a paste. Then add the other ingredients and continue to blend until the hummus starts turning a bit redder in colour. You can use right away, or store in the fridge before using.
