Pepper Hummus

Hummus is so much more fun when it’s brightly coloured. Make a batch of hummus and then add the pepper of your choice – red, yellow or green.
Serve with cherry tomatoes and vegetable sticks.


Serves 4
Total Time
15 Minutes
400g can of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 garlic cloves
1 red, yellow or green pepper, deseeded
1 tbsp of lemon juice
3 tbsp of tahini
2 tbsp of olive oil
1⁄2 tsp of ground cumin
3 tbsp of water
Olive oil
Pine kernels
Fresh herbs
Step 1

Put all the ingredients, except the water, in a food processor. Blend, adding a little water at a time, until you’re happy with the consistency and the hummus is smooth and creamy.

Step 2

Spoon it into a bowl, drizzle over some olive oil and finish with a sprinkling of pine kernels, herbs and paprika.

Cover and store in the fridge and eat within 3–4 days.
