Hummus with GiNiT Chilli

Prep Time 10 minutes
Servings 1 Bowl


  • 1 can chickpeas / garbanzo beans or home cooked equivalent - strain off liquid (aquafaba) into a jug for use in blending
  • 1 medium clove garlic minced
  • 2 Tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp lemon juice - or more to taste
  • 2 tsp GiNiT Chilli
  • salt to taste
  • Optional:
  • 1/4 cup 60ml tahini - adds additional depth of flavour and nutty notes


  • To Prepare:
  • Place all ingredients into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. Use as much of the chickpea liquid (aquafaba) as needed to make a good dipping consistency.


Serving Suggestion:
Hummus is great as a dip or a spread on a mezze platter, in a wrap or burger.
If the skins / membranes of the chickpeas (garbanzo beans) are removed before blending, a smoother product will result.
Tahini is a traditional ingredient in hummus, but it is not often a pantry item; it is however, a fantastic inclusion in hummus. For a milder hummus, chickpeas (garbanzo beans) can be substituted with butter beans or black eyed beans.
