Hummus is a delicious healthy dip for vegetables, a side of rice or even a spread on your sandwich. I like to use this as a side dip served with my Aromatic wild rice. There are so many different ways to present this dish using garnishes such as; pine nuts, drizzle of olive oil and paprika. Hummus  is high in iron and vitamin C, and also has significant amounts of folate and vitamin B6. The chickpeas make it a good source of protein and dietary fiber.


  • 1 cup of chickpeas, cooked
  • 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 4 tbsp of tahini paste
  • 2 lemons squeezed
  • 2 tbsp of ground cumin
  • ½ cup of olive oil (if required add more for smoothness)
  • Sea salt to taste
  • Dash of Cayenne pepper


If using canned chickpeas, rinse with cold water and drain. Add to food processor, with remaining ingredients. Blend until smooth. Add more oil for smoothness and texture-not watery.
