Simple homemade houmous

Houmous is a great way of getting healthy protein into your little ones diet. Shop bought houmous is great, and I’l be honest we used to use it a lot, but it can be pricey and have lots of added salt in it. Our simple homemade houmous recipe takes 5 minutes to make. It is delicious and can be kept for a few days in the fridge. Harry loves his with breadsticks and veg sticks or spread on toast!


  • 400g canned chickpeas, drained and rinsed
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and chopped
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp water
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • A generous twist of black pepper


  • Put all of the ingredients in a blender and blitz until smooth!  Literally, that’s it! It’s so easy!  If it’s a bit dry you can add a little more water, you can also add more cumin if you prefer but this is how we made ours!
