During summer when it is hot, I personally prefer lighter food and opt for wraps, salads, cold soups and dips with fresh crudites.

I read about adding herbs to dips and thought I would give it a go. I had some leftover parsley and basil that needed to go and came up with this herb hummus.

It is a fresh and healthy hummus with a twist that is super easy to make. If you are bored of normal hummus give this variation a go.

Ingredients for one bowl:

  • 1 Can of Chickpeas without water
  • 2 Cloves of Garlic
  • 2 Spring Onions
  • Handful of Fresh Basil and Parsley
  • 2 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 2 Tbsp Water
  • 2 Tbsp Tahini
  • Juice of Half a Lemon
  • Ground Cumin
  • Salt and Pepper


This must be the simplest recipe in terms of preparation I have posted on my blog.

Chop the herbs, garlic cloves and spring onions a little and squeeze out the lemon. Throw all ingredients into the food processor and blend. Done.

I like to eat my hummus with crackers or in a wrap with some greens.
