Simon Rimmer’s Houmous


Chickpeas are such a versatile ingredient that when blitzed together with some other simple store cupboard ingredients, they can take you on a taste journey to the Mediterranean, and the best thing about it, it will only take 5 minutes! Once you’ve made your own houmous, you will never buy it at the supermarket again. Simon Rimmer’s recipe is not only easy, it looks incredible too!



For the Houmous…

  • 400g chickpeas (1 tin, drained and washed)
  • Juice and zest of 2 lemons
  • 1 garlic clove crushed
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 100ml of good quality extra virgin olive oil

To serve…

  • Pitta, warmed or toasted
  • Pickles
  • A few non-blended chickpeas



Place the chickpeas, lemon juice and zest, garlic, tahini, and olive oil in a food processor. Blitz until smooth. You may prefer your houmous smooth or chunky, just keep an eye on how long you blitz for!



Spoon your houmous into a bowl or plate and make gentle dips with the back of your spoon. Scatter your retained chickpeas over and lightly drizzle with some more olive oil. Serve with a warm pitta bread and pickles, enjoy!
