Hello Healthy Houmous - Vegan and Dairy Free

This is a super easy recipe. I have used peanut butter as an alternative to tahini, as I feel it gives a better, softer flavour. Plus, peanut butter lasts for ages and is always available.

Ingredients (makes two ramekins)

 - 400g tin of soft chickpeas (I like to use TRS Asia Boiled Chickpeas) with 1/3 chickpea juice
- 2 tsp smooth peanut butter
- 1 clove of garlic
- juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- linseeds or paprika to serve (optional)

1. Blend all the ingredients in a food processor or using a hand blender. 

If you've never tried paprika on houmous, you must! It is a great addition to add flavour and vibrant colour. The other alternative is to sprinkle the houmous with linseeds or sesame seeds.


  1. Found your blog through instagram and love the look of your recipes! Would be interested to try your hummus with the addition of peanut butter - I use Harissa in mine. Posted a similar blogpost last week if you're interested!

    1. Hi there, thank you for your comment, and thanks for finding me through Instagram! Do try peanut butter, I find that it tastes so much better, it's very light. I will have a look at your blog :)
