  1. Yep, it's really that simple! Feel free to add more spices if you want to change up the flavour. This batch was enough for both of us to eat a houmous-bowl meal and have leftovers for the next day, so you can half the recipe for a more reasonable serving.

We served ours up with some tasty tortilla nachos, as well as black beans mixed with sweetcorn and mole before cooking. We also sprinkled a little cheese on top. This would also go great with avocado slices! Use the nachos to scoop up the houmous as a nacho bowl like we did, or use it as a dip for finger food.
