Garlic Chili Hummus

Who else is obsessed with hummus? I usually settle for store-bought hummus but I wanted to experiment with different flavors & create a homemade version.  So easy & so healthy for you! 


Time: 10 mins  


  • 1 can chickpeas  
  • 3 cloves garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste (I used Sambal Oelek from the Asian aisle!)
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon tahini sauce
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper  
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil  
  • Juice of half a lemon  


  1. Open the can of chickpeas & rinse them in a strainer.
  2. Put all ingredients except the olive oil into a food processor (careful when juicing the lemon to not let seeds into the mix!)
  3. Pulse until smooth. 
  4. Drizzle 1 tablespoon of the olive oil into the food processor then pulse for another 15 seconds.  
  5. Scoop the hummus into a serving dish & drizzle with the remaining olive oil.
