Homemade Hummus


For everyone who enjoys making their own Hummus, this particular method was featured on Rick Stein's Mediterranean Escapes. It's a little bit more involved than the way most of us usually do it, but worth every bit of effort I'm sure.

Doesn't that look delicious. As Mr Stein says; Hummus Royaaaale.

  1. I never made Hummus at home. I have to watch that again and give it a try,

    1. It might be best to make 'ordinary' hummus first, then try this one later.

  2. Wow, I'll have to up my game from my normal simple recipe. I especially love the seared paprika in hot oil and added afterwards. This looks really yummy!

    1. It makes my version look very plain.

  3. When I make hummus I start with dried chickpeas, and I toast up sesame seeds and grind them instead of using tahini. More work, but the flavor is well worth it.

    1. Canned chickpeas and ready made tahini for me... I'm lazy!

  4. \oh dear. I love hummus but the farmer hates it. Do I go to all this trouble to make it (it does look delicious) or do I continue to buy myself a pot now and then from the deli? Answers on a postcard please.

  6. I would make the basic recipe but all the 'extras' would make it too expensive for me. I would just stick to basic flavourings.

    1. Which bits did you think would be expensive? No gold leaf here!

  7. That would be fine for 'a treat' but I'm happy with the ordinary hummus. On pita,bread, of course.

    1. Deb, you should 'treat' yourself every day.

  9. I LOVE hummus, and since finding somewhere to buy tahini I make it occasionally - but just the simple Nigel Slater recipe for me!

  10. A recipe for "Whirled Peas" I see. Yes, sometimes it is best to ignore the day's events.

  11. Looks amazing. I've been making loads lately but I'm not a fan of tahini in it, it has a bitter taste I don't like.

    1. Sometimes I use the tahini, other times not. I really don't think it makes a huge difference to the final taste.

  12. That does look so delicious, I would eat up that bowlful with a spoon. No need for bread!

    I use store bought tahini and tinned chickpeas, maybe I will be a bit more adventurous next time.

    1. I really don't see the point of buying dried chickpeas, they take ages to cook and the tinned ones are just as good.
