Chilli and lime hummus



400g tin of chickpeas, drained

2 Tbsp tahini

1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil

1/4 cup water

1 lime: juice and zest

2 green chilli: seeds removed

1 small clove garlic

1/2 tsp cumin

salt and pepper


Place all ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor, and blitz until well combined and a smooth consistency. You may need to stop and stir mid-way through. Once desired consistency is reached, pour into a jar and store in the fridge. Will last up to 1 week in the fridge, so makes a great snack for the work or school week! Serve with veggie sticks such as carrot and celery, or rice crackers.

Alternative: If you're having guests over for dinner, this makes a great pre-dinner nibble. Impress guests my pouring a little olive oil over the top and then a sprinkle of dukkah before serving.
