The Best Zero Waste Hummus


This is my fav recipe because it’s so easy & you can feel good about not buying  plastic! What you need:

  • 1 cup of dried chick peas- soaked & boiled (or you can use a can if you don’t have enough time)
  • 1/4 cup of tahini
  • How to cook dried chick peas on a stove top: 
  • Soak 1/2 cup of dried chickpeas for 12 hours.
  • Drain, rinse, and add to a pot. Cover by a few inches with water, and add 1/2 teaspoon salt.
  • Bring to a boil, reduce heat, cover, and cook at a simmer until tender, about 90 minutes to 2 hours.
  • generous amount of olive oil (so it’s easy to blend you can add more as you go)
  • seasoning powder: curry and chilli as much as you like!
  •  lemon juice ( I use about a  half a lemon )
  • salt 1-2 tsp
  • 1 – 2 cloves of garlic (depends how much you like it)
  • Blend everything in a blender, until texture is puréed
  • Use a spatula to remove as much as you can!
  • Cover with bees wax when you’re done and store in fridge for 3-4 day!
