The perfect accompaniment to any dish.

It’s July, a time of the year when we are either eating at the beach, snacking by the pool or not in the mood for a heavy meal. Hummus is a great food for all these occasions, the mint flavour of this month’s recipe gives it a light and refreshing taste that’s perfect
for summer. This recipe is both salt and oil free.

Preparation time: 5 minutes
Making time: 5 minutes – depending on your blender


400g of chickpeas
½ cup of chopped fresh mint
3 tbsp tahini
1 lime
½ cup of water
4 cloves of garlic


  1. Dice the garlic – if you love garlic as much as me feel free to add additional cloves
  2. Chop up the fresh mint, this does not have to be done finely as the blender will also chop it up
  3. Drain and rinse the chickpeas
  4. Pour the ½ cup of water into the blender, add half the chickpeas, all of the tahini, garlic and mint then squeeze all the juice of the lime into it
  5. Start blending on a low setting until the mixture gets going, you may have to stop the blender to scrap down the sides and stir up the ingredients
  6. Continue to blend until the mixture is smooth, add in the remaining chickpeas
  7. Blend until all the mixture is combined
