I grew up eating classic hummus on pita bread and always loved it. It was only a matter of time before I started inventing new variations with other ingredients that I like to eat. Enjoy the classic and the variations as a spread, dip or filling in the pita sandwich.


Classic Hummus: In a blender, process the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, olive oil, salt and the finely chopped garlic into a paste. While the machine is running, slowly add the water. Continue stirring until smooth and season to taste.

Hummus with sweet potatoes: Preheat the oven to 210°C. Cut the sweet potato into 2 cm thick slices and toss them in a bowl with 2-3 tablespoons olive oil, the chopped garlic and the sea salt. Roast the sweet potatoes in the preheated oven until tender and slightly brown, about 20 minutes. In a blender, process the baked sweet potatoes, tahini, lemon juice, ½ tsp salt, and olive oil into a paste. Continue stirring until smooth and season to taste.

Black bean hummus: In a blender, process the black beans, sundried tomatoes, chili, olive oil, lime juice, cumin, salt and garlic into a paste. Continue stirring until smooth and season to taste.
