Yogurty houmous

This was the first thing I made when I got my new food processor!

It’s quick & easy to make & we all love it.  If I’m planning to have it in my packed lunch, then I don’t add any garlic – hope my colleagues in the office appreciate it!

The first time I made this I didn’t read the recipe properly & drained the chickpeas without saving the liquid, so used olive oil instead with no problems.


  • 1 x 400g can chickpea , don’t drain
  • 1 tbsp tahini paste
  • 1 fat garlic clove, crushed
  • 3 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • good squeeze lemon juice


  1. Drain the chickpeas into a sieve set over a bowl or jug to catch the liquid.
  2. Tip the chickpeas, tahini, garlic and yogurt into a food processor or blender and whizz until smooth.
  3. Whizz in a tbsp of the chickpea liquid at a time until you have a nice consistency, then scrape into a bowl, stir in a squeeze of lemon juice and season to taste.
