Dill and Radish Hummous

Making hummous at home is so simple to do and is generally always going to be healthier than the shop bought versions! You have an endless choice of ingredients to include in your hummous recipes and this one is one of my faves!

Radish might not be one of the first things that come to mind when you are choosing how to flavour your hummous but they are great for both taste and nutrition. These veggies have a natural spicy kick to them which is great for soothing sore throats and decreasing the presence of mucus in the body. This also makes them useful in clearing the sinuses and combatting colds. Radishes are also known to be useful in aiding digestion as well as tackling toxins in the body. Add to that they contain a combination of phytonutrients, vitamins, minerals and fiber and you have a food that is great for the whole body!

Dill is a herb that is also incredibly healthy! It is believed to be useful in aiding digestion, relieving insomnia and helping to prevent certain cancers and respiratory disorders. It is also useful for boosting the immune system as well as helping to alleviate inflammation in the body.

To make a batch of my hummous for yourself, you will need the following ingredients:

1 x 400g tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 Tbsp. of tahini
2 Tbsp. of olive oil
5 radishes
A large handful of dill, stems removed
Juice of 1 lemon
Salt and pepper to taste
A litte more dill to garnish

All you have to do is put all of the ingredients into your food processor or blender and whizz until smooth and creamy! You can then transfer to a container and serve immediately or store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week.

This hummous is especially perfect for enjoying with carrot sticks or with your favourite bread!

  1. I love hummus and you are right, it is so easy to make at home. When I was a kid, I liked mine a little chunky and on warm toast.

    I wonder how the radishes would taste if they were cooked though before you put them into the hummus

  8. Clever addition of radish – hummus doesn’t have to be the traditional recipe – indeed I am about to post sweet potato hummus that doesn’t even need chickpeas….
