The Best Hummous Ever - Vegan, GF & Healthy!


Hummous is one of life's greatest joys, a bit like the first pint of the day or jumping into a cool bed of clean sheets. In our humble opinion this is the best hummous ever, florinis peppers add a sweetness to it that is however only just in the background due to the lemon & tahini while the red-hot chilli peppers are there to spice up your tongue...but not too much cause hummous is supposed to be mild, and that it still is. 


  • 1 400 g can chickpeas drained & rinsed
  • 1 florinis pepper
  • 1/4 red-hot chili pepper
  • 1 large clove garlic peeled
  • 1 heaped tbsp tahini
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • Juice ½ lemon
  • 2-3 tbsp olive oil
  • Sea salt & freshly ground black pepper


  1. Add all the ingredients into a food processor along with 1tsp of salt and a big pinch of black pepper & paprika. Blend until smooth, adding a little more olive oil if needed.

  2. Taste and adjust the seasoning. You may need more lemon, salt and pepper here. Add small amounts at a time, blending in between until your hummus is perfect.

  3. Transfer the hummus into a bowl/airtight container. Serve chilled.
