Homemade Hummus

By Sue Bedford (MSc Nutritional Therapy)

This ‘nutritious and delicious’ hummus is so easy to make and so versatile. Dip your crudites in it, enjoy it as part of a meze or bbq, take it on a picnic, spread it on some sourdough and enjoy dipped in some chilli infused olive oil or spread it on some pitta!

Chickpeas are a great source of protein, folate, magnesium and choline – all of which are very important nutrients when trying to conceive, combine these with some selenium from the garlic, vitamin c from the lemon and the anti-inflammatory properties from the olive oil and you have yourself a fab fertility supporting dip!


1 can of chickpeas (you may wish to use dried chickpeas but will need to soak them for a few hours first)

2 cloves of garlic crushed

65 ml of extra virgin olive oil

½ lemon (juice and zest)

3 tsp of tahini (sesame seed paste)

40ml of water

To make:

Rinse the chickpeas and tip into a food processor with the olive oil and blitz until smooth. Add the garlic, lemon and tahini paste along with 30ml of water and blitz again. Add water a little at a time as required until you achieve the required consistency. Enjoy!
