Hummous is surprisingly easy and cheap to make at home, plus it is naturally gluten free. We are trying to cut down on single use plastic at the moment and making dips like this at home is one of the many steps you can take.

My hummous recipe is healthier than regular hummous as it uses aquafaba (the water from tinned chickpeas) in place of some of the oil. This yields a lovely light, silky smooth hummous that you will want to make again and again.

Gluten Free Hummous


  • 240g chickpeas
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 60ml extra virgin olive oil
  • 60ml aquafaba (the chickpea water)


  1. Open a tin of chickpeas and use a sieve to drain the acquafaba chickpea water into a bowl, set aside.
  2. Tip the drained chickpeas into a small blender and blitz with the olive oil until a thick paste has formed.
  3. Mince the garlic and add it to the blender, along with the tahini and lmeon juice. Blitz.
  4. Cook the peas and then cool them under cold water. Drain well and add to the hummous along with the aquafaba. Blitz until really smooth.
