Quirky Houmous


Prep Time: 5M
Serves: 4

There's more where this came from!


  1. 3 dessert spoons of olive oil
  2. 140ml water
  3. 2 cloves garlic (optional)
  4. 2 pinches ground cumin
  5. 20g tahini
  6. 30g pea protein
  7. 2 pinches salt to taste
  8. To garnish (optional):
  9. Olive oil
  10. Smoked paprika

What’s the quirk? It’s a chickpea-free recipe! Looking at the ingredients you might think that this houmous would be too runny to work successfully. However, this recipe whips up a creamy, light and delicious houmous which works well in sandwiches, paired with falafels or just as a dip for bread, crisps and raw veg.

It’s especially great as a protein rich post workout snack, thanks to the addition of our Pea Protein. Plus, pairing the houmous with raw carrots and cucumber means picking up lots of vitamins and minerals to help your body absorb the protein. So, why not give this quirky houmous a try!


  • Add ingredients in order to small bowl.
  • Mix until creamy, then chill.
  • To garnish, drizzle over some olive oil and sprinkle on some smoked paprika before serving.
