Hummus is a traditional Arabic dish, which is definitely worth trying! You can find it already prepared in many shops, but it is most delicious and most healthy if you do it yourself. There are many variations of its recipe, here is my favourite one:


300 g raw chickpeas

2 tablespoons tahini

olive oil

Himalayan salt

spicy red pepper


freshly squeezed lemon juice

a bit of water

1 tablespoon hemp seeds

1/2 tablespoon chia seeds


Soak the raw chickpeas in water for about 8 hours. Wash them well and boil them for about 40 minutes, until they get soft enough. Depending on the chickpeas, you might need to boil them a bit longer. Put a bit of the boiled chickpeas into blender, add a bit of water, tahini and olive oil and blend well. The result should be paste-like mixture. If your blender is weaker, it is normal to have some lumps here or there, but don’t worry about that. Blend the chickpeas on portions, because if you try to do it all at once, it would be too difficult and your blender might not survive it. You have to use water when you blend the chickpeas, otherwise the consistence won’t be good (sharing personal experience here 😀 )

After you finish blending the chickpeas, pour the mixture into a bowl, add a bit of Himalayan salt, spicy red pepper, cumin and freshly squeezed lemon juice and mix well. Then decorate with chia and hemp seeds. The hummus is perfect together with salad made of fresh vegetables. Bon Appetit!
