Do you love hummus as much as I do? Have you ever tried to make some at home?
I have to admit that I tried myself last year, and the result wasn’t as good as I expected.
However, last weekend, I had the opportunity to watch in action my favorite chef, also known under the nickname my sweetheart 😉, cooking hummus for us.
He did 2 hummus variations, some healthy dips and a little salad as a side.
Recipe: Hummus #1
- 200g chickpeas (better to buy dry ones than the ones in can)
- 3 tbsp of olive oil
- half a lemon
- 1 tsp of curry
- 1 tsp of coriander
- a bit of piment spice and oregano
- a clove of garlic
- 100mL of coconut oil
Except the piment spice and oregano, the paste made from the ingredients above is used half for recipe 1 and half for recipe 2. Follow the instructions below on the pictures for the recipe and once you have the hummus paste ready, separate it in 2 equal parts for the hummus variations.

Recipe: Hummus #2
- Use half of the hummus paste of the 1st recipe (only without the oil, piment and oregano)
- 50g of shredded coconut
- 1/4 cup of shredded lemon peel
- 1/2 apple
- 1/4 cup of dried raisins nuts (or other nuts)
- a spread of olive oil and vinegar
Have a look at the 3rd recipe below, to prepare firstly the baked and sliced apple for this recipe.
Recipe: Healthy snacks and salad
- 3 potatoes
- 1/2 apple
- spices you like (ex: coriander, curry, piment)
- 2 tspn of olive oil
- 100g rucola salad
- 50g dry tomates
To prepare the potatoes and apples, cut them in thin slices, spread some olive oil, salt, pepper and spices you like on them. Bake them in the oven at 200°C (400°F) for 10 minutes, then slipped them over and bake them for another 5 minutes.
I hope you are not at work reading this and feeling hungry just from the pictures!
It’s indeed a delicious and easy dish to prepare for yourself or for a dinner party.
