Easy Spicy Hummus

It has been some time since I last posted a recipe. Sadly it has been very much same old – same old for me during the lockdowns. Today, however, I decided to literally spice things up a bit by making some homemade spicy hummus. This is an easy (or even cheaters) recipe as I have not gone through the whole process of soaking and preparing my own beans. That said I think this is far nicer than most store bought varieties and a lot less expensive.


  • Chick Peas (Garbanzo Beans) – 400 g can in water
  • Haricot Beans (Navy Beans or similar)  – 400 g can in water
  • Garlic – 1 large clove
  • Lemon Juice – 1 Tbs
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil – 1 Tbs
  • Curry Paste – 1 Tbs (I use Tikka)
  • Cajun Spice – 1 tsp
  • Water – < 1 Tbs (as needed)


Peel the garlic and blitz in a food processor.  Then add the curry paste, lemon juice, and spice.  Drain the tins of beans/peas and add to the processor and blitz on high for one minute.  With a spoon stir the mixture to allow any chucks to be moved to the blades, and blitz again for half a minute. You can if needed add splashes of water to reach your desired consistency (I prefer mine on the thick side).  Spoon into a storage bowl and chill.  That’s all there is to it.
