(hummus, humus, humous etc)
400g tin Chickpeas
100g Tahini (sesame seed paste)
3 Garlic Cloves (crushed)
4 (maybe 5) tablespoons Lemon Juice
1 tablespoon Extra Virgin Olive Oil
1. Blend the chickpeas with the lemon juice until it makes a nice smooth paste (in a blender or food processor).
2. Add the tahini, garlic, olive oil and a good pinch of sea salt.
3. Blend this in until smooth. You may need a wee bit more lemon juice.
4. Serve with fresh bread or pitta and some high quality olive oil for drizzling or dipping.
You can add things like cumin or chilli (maybe 1/2 teaspoon each), or even chopped peppers etc to vary the taste.
