Hummus Recipe

Oh just give me a warm pitta bread and let me dive right in to a huge bowl of hummus! I literally cannot get enough. I am pleased to say Bam Bam has the same obsession I do. Quite often at lunchtime you will find us fighting over a big bowl, loading up pittas and rice cakes and whatever else we can find to dip into it.

Shop bought hummus really just isn’t the same once you have tried making your own. And since all you have to do is throw the ingredients into a mixer and whizz away until smooth you have no excuse! You only need to make the effort to measure things out and eat it, which really is no effort at all!

Make Your Own Hummus Recipe

I fell in love with hummus even more during our trip to Rhodes. There was this lovely little restaurant right on the beach. They served a big bowl of hummus with a herby pitta on the side. I had it with lunch most days and to beat the post holiday blues, it was one of the first things I made on our return.
