Hummus is an incredibly versatile dish, which you can season in countless ways according to taste. Are you making hummus for the first time? If so, start with the basic recipe and carefully experiment with different herbs. Are you a lover of spicy food? Then try adding some extra smoked bell peppers or, for example, blend with garden peas. This will give you a fresh, green and extra healthy hummus. Below you will find the basic recipe with a tip for tasty toppings.

You can spread the hummus on a cracker with cucumber or tomato slices for lunch. Chick pea sprouts are full of fibre, making sure you will feel fuller for longer. Great when you have a busy day ahead of you. But hummus is also a big hit whilst enjoying some drinks. Cut some cucumber, radish, bell pepper or carrot into strips and serve with freshly baked bread. Delicious for dipping and it looks great on the table. Did you know chick peas are bursting with nutrients? This recipe is a great example of the balance between tasty and healthy eating.

Put the chick pea sprouts, tahini, garlic and cumin powder into a bowl. Add a drop of olive oil with the juice of the lemon and blend into a smooth whole with the hand mixer.
