Easy-peasy Peri-peri Hummus with Peri-peri Drizzle Recipe

One of our favourite snacks/afternoon meals right now has got to be spicy peri peri hummus with peri peri drizzle and warm pitta bread dippers. As an easy, on-the-go cravings cracker, this warming meal is perfect for any cold winter afternoon. It is also delicious with carrot dippers as an extra healthy alternative, and is completely vegan friendly!

Derived from our love of Nandos, we developed this recipe to mimic their mouth-wateringly famous Hummus with Peri-Peri Drizzle, which is now available in the shops for £2 a tub. However, by following our Nandos’ hummus recipe and prepping in bulk for the week, you will be able to enjoy this spicy treat for a mere 70p per serving!

That’s way better than half price, and if you’re eating anywhere as much of it as us (and believe me, after you try it you will be!), you can save £13 a week over 10 portions!


I will admit I am no artisan, Michelin star chef, but after trying my best to replicate the delicious peri-peri oil you get with your hummus, I think I have come pretty close to the real thing. Both the Nando’s peri drizzle recipe and the Nando’s hummus recipe are incredibly simple, requiring only a food processor or a blender and absolutely no cooking!




What Equipment Do You Need?





Peri-Peri Hummus Recipe


  • 240g Chickpeas (drained)
  • 1tbsp Tahini paste
  • 3tbsp Lemon Juice, (or two fresh lemons)
  • 50ml Virgin Olive Oil
  • 2 cloves Garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • Pinch of salt to flavour
  • Good splash of Nandos peri-peri sauce



  1. Add all ingredients to food processor and blast for 2 minutes.
  2. Safely taste your creation to see if you need more lemon or salt, it’s your personal preference.
  3. Once the flavour is right test the desired spiciness of your hummus, if you want it spicier then drizzle in more peri-peri sauce
  4. If consistency is too thick add a small splash of water and blend for a further 2 minutes, repeat until you have a thick, smooth hummus.
  5. Turn blender off and scrape clean (lick if necessary).




Peri-peri Oil Drizzle Recipe (Eight 20ml hummus-drizzle servings)

What is Peri-Peri Oil Drizzle?

The perfect accompaniment to your Peri Peri Hummus, this spicy oil mix adds a mouthwatering mixture of spice, tang and smokiness that will leave you desperate for another dip. No portion of hummus is complete without a good splash of this sauce combined with toasted pitta bread for dipping.


What is in Peri-Peri Oil?

  • 50ml Virgin Olive Oil
  • 100ml water
  • Large pinch of Rock Salt
  • ½tsp Hot Chilli Powder
  • 2 cloves Garlic, peeled and roughly chopped
  • 1 Chilli Pepper, deseeded and roughly chopped
  • 4tsp Smoked Paprika
  • 6tbsp Lemon Juice (or 4 fresh lemons)
  • 1tsp Nandos spice rub
  • 1tbsp Vinegar



  1. Add all ingredients to a food processor and blend until smooth.
  2. Decant into air-tight bottle and store in the fridge.
  3. Shake well before use as the oil and water will separate.




An extra, little tip for you for on-the-go hummus enjoyment, is if you enjoy a Nandos as much as we do then keep your peri drizzle bottles and wash them out for re-use with your own, home-made peri-peri oil! Warm your pittas up on a grill or in the oven if you want an authentic Nandos experience in the comfort of your own home.

Try this out at home and let us know below what you thought of it. Did you like it? Would you add more spice? Or do you prefer hummus without the spice? If you did enjoy this recipe then make sure you share it with your family and friends.

    I live very far away from Nando’s. But I have eaten there. And now I suddenly missing it. We are able to buy their sauces here in the states but they are pricey. Thanks for this post. I’m going to try this out soon!

  2. highlands2hammocks

    Thanks for commenting ? yeah the sauce itself is quite pricey, but the hummus tastes amazing! We eat it every week as an on the go snack and at work!

  3. highlands2hammocks

    It’s honestly the easiest thing in the world to make! And a LOT cheaper to make your own if you eat lots!

  4. Julie Whitney

    I’m going to have to try these recipes! Hummus is my favorite snack, but I’ve never made it.

  5. Jessica

    Yum. I’ve never made hummus, I might try this. Thank you. ??

    1. highlands2hammocks

      It’s one of our favourite snacks! Make it weekly ?

      1. Jessica

        Awesome. My husband started making guacamole and now we eat it every week. ?

  6. authensible1357

    Sounds delicious.

    A favourite in our home and I want to believe that I am the Hummus Queen and therefore hummus snob 🙂 🙂 My recipe is the same; without the peri-peri sauce though! So your version must taste as good or better!!

    1. highlands2hammocks

      I do love a bit of spice in my hummus but it would still be amazing without ?

    I’ve tried the proper nando’s drizzle tonight in one of their meal kits and I’ve fallen in love with it. I googled to see if you can buy it and it only comes with the hummus. But I’m not a fan of hummus, then I’ve found your recipe for the drizzle, which I definitely want to try. Just one question. Is it white wine vinegar?

    1. highlands2hammocks

      And the drizzle-hummus combo is also so expensive! That is why we made our own recipe, to save money. It is plain, distilled vinegar, just to add a bit of tartness to the sauce.

    I was craving the peri peri drizzle but didn’t want to go to Nando’s, and I found your recipe. My teenage son and I made it and it’s a hit! the only difference is that we only added a splash of water, to make the sauce thicker.
    My son broke out the naan bread (we didn’t have any pittas at home), went quiet (that’s when you know it’s good) and started nodding. Even my husband, who’s not a fan of chilli, loved it. and I mean LOVED it. Next time I’ll have to double the recipe because, well, it’s all gone!
