A Triplet of Hummus


Just as good, but slightly different!

We use it as a spread for bread, as a dip for vegetables and as a lovely dressing for a healthy salad. It is clear, we just LOVE hummus! That’s why The Green Happiness shared a lovely recipe of home-made hummus!

Prep time: 10 minutes

Extra materials: colander, jack-screw, blender or a food processor


  • 1 teaspoon of tahini
  • 450 gram of chickpeas
  • 2 pieces of garlic
  • A spoonful of oil
  • A half piece of lemon
  • Pepper & salt
  • 1 teaspoon of cumin


  1. Wash off the chickpeas with water using a colander
  2. Squeeze out the half piece of lemon and collect the juice
  3. Also squeeze out the pieces of garlic or cut the garlic finely
  4. Slightly roast the cumin and use the jack-screw to crush it
  5. Subsequently, put all the ingredients (except pepper & salt) in the food processor. Mix those ingredients thoroughly in order to get a smooth paste. Did the paste get to thick? Add some water to get that smooth paste!
  6. Season the hummus with pepper & salt
