A delicious hummus that’s easy to make at home and doesn’t contain all of the oil used in most recipes


The UK hummus shortage prompted me to get this recipe up on the website! It’s one of those things that is so super-easy to make, and tastes so good freshly made that I think it’s such a shame to buy the plastic pots of it in the supermarket!

Most hummus recipes use a fair old bit of olive oil, which is delicious, but not great if you are trying to slim down. I use fat-free yoghurt instead of oil to give it a smooth and ‘dippy’ consistency, and personally I think it’s just as tasty as the oil-laden kind!

I’ve actually always really disliked raw carrot, but I have found that dipped into hummus I am quite happy munching through it as the hummus is so tasty!

For Slimming World, I add tahini, which is the only syns in this. I think that this really adds something which makes it worth those few syns, but I am going to be experimenting over the summer with a few different versions!

My Recipe

Serves: 4-6
Syns: 5 syns for whole batch
Healthy Extra: none


  • 2 tins chickpeas, drained and rinsed.
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tbsp tahini
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 3 tbsp fat free Greek yoghurt


  1. In a food processor, add in all the ingredients and blend until smooth.

Additional Info

I like to serve with carrot sticks, pepper sticks, and homemade wholemeal pitta bread.
