  • Food Processor


  • 1x 400g tin chickpeas (drained but reserve liquid)
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 2-3 tbsp lemon juice (fresh preferred but bottle is fine)
  • 2-3 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 tbsp ground cumin
  • 2 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 tbsp chickpea liquid (aquafaba)


  • Drain your chickpeas over a bowl and reserve the liquid. Rinse the chickpeas but don't worry about drying them off.
  • In a food processor, add the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic cloves, cumin and paprika. Blend. It will be quite sticky and chunky.
  • 1 tbsp at a time, add the reserved chickpea liquid (aquafaba) until the mixture is to your desired thickness. You might need more than than 4 tbsp - just judge it as you go!
  • Decant the hummus into an airtight container. Keeps for around 7 days in the fridge or in the freezer for 1 month.
