Creamy Whipped Hummus

Chickpeas blended with garlic and tahini are delicious — but whisk in a splash of that magical little ingredient called aquafaba, and it aerates the hummus to a sort of dreamy-creamy consistency!

Preparation time Prep: 15 mins
Skill level Easy Peasy

You will need:

  • 1 x 400g can chickpeas, plus ½ the aquafaba (liquid in the tin) reserved
  • ¼ clove garlic
  • 3 tablespoons tahini
  • 1 lemon, juiced
  • 3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
Recipe: Simon Toohey


  • 1Drain the chickpeas, but reserve the liquid.
  • 2In a blender place the chickpeas (minus the liquid), garlic, tahini, lemon juice and olive oil, salt and pepper, and blend to a smooth paste.
  • 3In a separate bowl whisk the aquafaba until it has aerated and become light and foamy. Then whisk this through the hummus mixture.
  • 4Drizzle more olive oil over the top to serve.
