Hummus is my rock. No, Jesse is my rock, but hummus is up there somewhere! I love a creamy and smooth hummus that I can just dip my pita bread into and be happy. This is one of the easiest Thermomix recipes for a quick dip and once you have tasted the wonderful flavours of homemade hummus you will never go back. You can easily spice up this basic recipe with anything you like. I quite like adding some smoked paprika, roasted red peppers and chilli. Totally up to you. Just dip away.



  • 2 cans chickpeas drained
  • 250 g light Tahini
  • 30 g lemon juice
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 20 g olive oil
  • 200-250 g ice cold water
  • 1 pinch sea salt
  • 1/4 tsp cumin
  • 2-3 coriander stalks


  1. Place the chickpeas, Tahini, lemon juice, garlic cloves, olive oil, water, salt, cumin and coriander in the mixing bowl. Blend 1 Min. / Speed 10.

  2. While it is blending you might need to add some more water to achieve a smooth consistency. If the Thermomix sounds like the blades are spinning without actually incorporating food, simply add a little more water.

  3. Serve straight away. You can also refrigerate the mixture for up to 3 days.
