Leah Itsines How to Make Spicy Hummus

 

Oh yes you read that right, its SPICY hummus. 
I LOVE hummus, but sometimes can be a little boring.....so I add a little bit of heat and it just MAKES the dip! 

Ingredients (makes 2-3 cups):
2 x 400g Cans of Chickpeas 
1 Tsp Cayenne pepper
3 Tbsp Lemon Juice
2 Garlic Clove, crushed
1/2 Cup olive oil (more if needed)
Small handful of coriander (Optional)
Sprinkle of Salt and Pepper
1/2 tsp chilli flakes 

Directions: 

  1. Place ALL ingredients minus the olive oil into a food processor and begin to blend. Stop every now and again to wipe down edges to make sure everything is being blended nicely. 
  2. Pour olive oil slowly into the blender, until mixture is to your desired consistency.  
  3. Pair with carrots, cucumber or pita bread.

  • Thanks for the great recipe! I didn’t have any cayenne pepper, so it was a rather mild hummus, but next time I will hunt some down and add it! (tip: add some water if the chickpeas aren’t blending nicely) (unless I just have a really old blender that couldn’t do the job properly 😂)
