Heavenly Hummus aka Houmus

I am addicted to this stuff !

(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
Sea Salt

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.

Yum !

You can add things like cumin or chilli (maybe 1/2 teaspoon each), or even chopped peppers etc to vary the taste.
