I love hummus! It can be put with almost anything...bread, breadsticks, crackers, pitta bread, carrot sticks, celery many varieties! I have had many different flavours of hummus from Chilli and Lemon to Sundried Tomato! But I always come back to my Homemade Smokey Chickpea and Lentil. A lovely combination of flavour and texture!


Homemade Protein Packed Chickpea and Lentil Hummus

  • 1/2 can of chickpeas
  • 1 1/2 tbsp of lemon (juice)
  • 1/2 a box/can of green lentils (cooked)
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • 1 tsp of smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp of cumin
  • Pinch of sea salt
  • 3 tbsp of filtered water
  • 2 tsp of tahini

How to make Chickpea and Lentil Hummus

1.  Weigh out all of your ingredients and prep your work station!

2. Wash and drain your lentils and chickpeas, then place them into the blender.

3. Add in the smoked paprika, lemon, garlic, water, tahini, salt and cumin into the blender and blend away!

Blend until smooth-ish (it will be quite a thick consistency  this is because my recipe doesn't contain oil).

4. As soon as it's blended its ready to serve! Dress with leftover chickpeas, a sprig of coriander and a dash of smoked paprika and sea salt!

Tastes so yummy! It is super quick and easy! So effective and protein packed. My go to snack!

I hope you give this delicious chickpea and lentil hummus a try! And if you do, be sure to tag the picture #AVogelRecipes on Pinterest so we can see :)
