Houmous is one of our favourite dips. Along with good 'ole guacamole, it's one of our go-to dips to snack on when at home.  This spicy red pepper houmous recipe is simple.  It only requires a few ingredients and a blender of some description, we use a hand blender.

These last few months we have really been really focused on eating well and making sure our food is nutritious.  We have also put more effort into making food from scratch instead of buying it pre-made in the supermarket.  Houmous is a great example of this.

Spicy Red Pepper Houmous

This recipe is just as delicious (if not better) than shop bought and is preservative free.  For some reason, we always thought making houmous ourselves would be really complicated but it isn’t.  In fact, we have discovered dips in general, are usually really easy to put together and they then can be used for a great snack idea or as an accompaniment to your main course.

Houmous goes perfectly with warmed pitta bread, carrots and other crudités or if you are being more indulgent of course you could have some crisps.  In fact, we really got into houmous when we hosted parties and needed some crisps and dips for everyone to snack on!

This recipe makes a lot and so we tend to split it and enjoy it over a few days as a savoury snack.  We usually have around a quarter per go so it would last for 4 snacks, or if we're sharing then a couple each!  If you cover with cling film and leave it in the fridge it stays fresh for a few days.

Ingredients

  • 1 Tin of Chick Peas drained and rinsed
  • 1 Tsp Chilli Oil
  • 1 Roasted Red Pepper
  • 2 Garlic Cloves
  • Juice of 1/2 a Lemon
  • A Dash of Water
  • Salt and Pepper to taste

Instructions

  1. Place all ingredients in blender and blend until smooth.

You can experiment with different ingredients to find your favourite flavoured houmous!  Some great alternatives to red peppers are caramelised onion, sundried tomato and jalapeños!

What do you like your houmous served with?  We would love some new ideas!
