Homemade hummus

I always used to buy hummus in the bucketload. Once I learned how easy it was to make, I never buy it now. 

Quick and east ingredients - for you and for baby 

This recipe is not suitable if your child has a sesame allergy as tahini is made from sesame seeds. 

400g tin chickpeas in water
1-2 tbsp tahini
1 garlic clove
juice of 1 or 2 lemons
(pinch of salt - see below)
2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil


  1. Drain the chickpeas, whilst retaining some of the liquid they came in. 
  2. Place the chickpeas, tahini, garlic, olive oil and lemon in a large bowl and use a handheld blender to mix to your desired consistency. (You can add more or less garlic and lemon juice to taste). 
  3. If you are giving this to your baby, then siphon off their portion before adding any salt to yours. 
  4. Store in the fridge in an airtight container and use within 3-4 days.
