Red Kidney Bean Hommous

This is an easy dip/sauce which can be made with ingredients which you just store in the cupboard. It goes well with tortilla chips or as a side dish for tex-mex dishes. Just don't be put off by the colour!


  • 1 tin of red kidney beans, drained
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 3 tbsp water
  • 3 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1 clove of garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • A pinch of salt


  1. Combine all the ingredients in a blender and blend into a smooth paste.
  2. Chill for at least 2 hours before serving.
Makes about 400ml of dip.
