6 Ingredient Dip
This simple hummus dip is made from pantry staples and can be on the table in just a few minutes. Here's what you need to make it:
- minced garlic - you can either use storebought minced garlic (my favourite option!) or mince a clove of garlic yourself
- chickpeas - are a type of legume also known as garbanzo beans. Drain and rinse the chickpeas before using.
- tahini - you can buy either hulled or unhulled tahini (I use Mayvers brand). I use hulled tahini in my hummus as it gives it a beautiful creamy flavour.
- lemon juice - use the juice from 1 lemon (approximately 30ml).
- olive oil - this makes the dip super creamy and smooth. I like to drizzle a little extra over when serving.
- sea salt - season to your liking.
How To Make Hummus
It would be almost impossible to find an easier recipe! Think 1 step... 5 minutes... that's it!
Place all of the ingredients into a food processor or Thermomix.
Mix for 20 seconds and then scrape down the sides (the dip will be very chunky at this stage).
Mix for a further 20 seconds and scrape down the sides again.
Check the consistency of the dip and add a little of the reserved chickpea water if it's too dry for your liking. Mix again until the texture and consistency is to your liking.
Hummus is such a delicious and healthy snack. Here's a few simple ways to serve it:
