Homemade Hummus

I often make up batches of homemade hummus to keep in the fridge.  In my humble opinion, homemade is so much better than store brought, plus hummus is so quick and easy to make.  I like mine with a little extra garlic, the beauty of this recipe is you can adjust it to suit your taste ie if your hummus is thicker than you’d like then add more lemon juice or oil to thin it out and make it creamier.

I like to have it on hand in the fridge so kids can either snack on it after school or put in their lunchbox and have to dip with vegetable sticks. I got these little dip containers a few years ago from Big W, unfortunately, they are no longer available.  Although, these snack n dip containers are ideal for dip and vegetable sticks.

Yum! I always make my own. My recipe is similar to yours but I always add a few shakes of ground cumin to spice it up a bit. Even my fussy 5 year old devours it. With carrot sticks no less! It’s the only time she eats carrots…

Where do you get Tahini from? I’ve browsed the aisles at woolies (and searched it online shopping) and can’t see it anywhere!

Ann-Marie, you can buy Tahini in most supermarkets. It’s usually the health food section. You should definitely be able to get it from your local health food store. There is usually a selection of hulled or I hulled tahini. In hulled is lighter is colour, and flavour.
Good luck.

Ah thanks! I was certain they would stock it but didn’t know what section to look in. Health food section here I come!

Do you need to use tahini? What does it taste like to use something else as a substitute? Many thanks in advance <3
