Let’s go back to our Arabic cooking class this week. You have discovered the famous Fattouche salad and today I propose you to discover the Hoummus recipe as the students from Iraq, Palestine and Syria taught us.

Hummus is a delicious spread made with chickpeas, yogurt and tahina (sesame cream). Traditionally a natural cow yoghurt is used. But for this recipe revisited I thought of replacing the cow yogurt by a soy yogurt (organic of course).


We eat hummus with Lebanese bread or with falafels (yum yum yum!!). Yes I know, I’m very greedy!

It’s a quick and easy recipe to prepare and it’s delicious. I’m sure you’ll enjoy yourselves too. I’ll unveil his recipe and then we’ll sit down to eat, folks!

  5. In a medium-sized bowl, crush the garlic clove, add tahini, salt, lemon juice.
  6. Add the chickpeas and blitz them all with the a hand held blender or use a Nutribullet until you get a nice purée.
