Maybe you’ve heard it before too. Hummus is very healthy. And the surprise is that it is very easy to make yourself.
Last Sunday I tried it out for a birthday with tasty pieces of cucumber, sandwiches and carrots. The guests loved it. I got the healthy compliments 😉
How do you make hummus quickly and easily?
- a jar or can of chickpeas
- 1 large clove of crushed garlic
- 2 tablespoons sesame seed tahini (a paste made from sesame seeds)
- lemon juice (preferably fresh and add at your own discretion)
- freshly ground black pepper and a pinch of salt
- fresh chives
- possibly olive oil
Hummus preparation method:
Now you see how easy it is! Put all the ingredients in a food processor or blender and mix. Add some olive oil if the pasta is too firm. Well simple right?
Hummus is delicious on bread or on a cracker, but also as a healthy dip for bell peppers, cucumbers or carrots.
Tip try it with other fresh herbs such as basil or parsley. At the market I recently had hummus with paprika in it. Also worth a try.

Together with Jenny I own Good food Healthy living. After my study period I mainly worked as an online analyst and made great career moves. But my real passion lies with healthy food and cooking! I have often worked with Jenny and I was often able to advise her on which food was right for her. We enjoyed exploring together. What exactly is a healthy lifestyle? What effect does nutrition and exercise have on how you feel? Why is the power of thoughts so strong? This website is my passion. Together with Jenny I like to share tips about a healthy lifestyle. I’m not a doctor, so I can’t give health advice. However, I can give tips about a sustainable and healthy lifestyle. I like to share recipes and also like to try something new in the field of nutrition.
