I am obsessed with Hummus. Can’t get enough of the stuff so much so I’ll be caught eating it straight out of the food processor before it even lands on the table!

Great with salads, as a dip, slathered on toast – the uses are endless.

I hope you love this Hummus recipe from Harriet as much as I do. A great kitchen staple and so simple to knock up too!
