Nut- and Sesame free Hummus (Turkish Mezze)


Many who suffer from a nut allergy or intolerance, also have to avoid sesame seeds, therefore Hummus is often left off the snack table. But you don’t have to from now on. Follow this amazing recipe and you can dip all you want!

Serves: enough for an evening of snacking


125 gr. Chick Peas (welled/cooked (dried) or drained and rinsed (can))
2 tbsp Lemon Juice
3 tbsp Yogurt (Turkish or Greek)
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 cloves Garlic
2 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Paprika powder (hot or mild to your own taste)


– Put everything in the blender and mix until a smooth paste forms.

– Taste! Season with salt and pepper. If too thick you can add a bit more yogurt.

– Leave it alone for 30-60 minutes so all the flavors can do its magic.

That’s it!
It goes well with chips, Turkish bread, veggie sticks and works a treat on a bit of toast.
