Convent Hommus


I love a Hommus dip but this one is a little more vamped up (I hate that expression about ‘pimping’ things – do we not appreciate the usual connotation?). I think this version was inspired by Jamie Oliver. It takes an extra few minutes which are very well spent for an attractive and tasty plate – it tastes great and looks much more festive, particularly when served with fresh crusty homemade bread.


  • Hommus (feel free to take an extra step and make your own)
  • Lemon
  • Good olive oil
  • Paprika
  • Sea salt
  • Ground pepper


  • Stir the Hommus and place in a bowl
  • Liberally squeeze lemon juice over the top
  • Liberally pour olive oil over the top
  • Sprinkle with Paprika
  • Grind some fresh sea salt and pepper over the top

I don’t think you’ll find much left in half an hour.
