INGREDIENTS 1 x 400g tin of chickpeas 1 garlic clove, mashed 1 heaped tsp tahini paste 2 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp water 2 tsp ground cumin
1/4 tsp paprika juice of 1/2 - 1 lemon, depending on the size
1. Whiz the chickpeas, garlic, tahini, olive oil, water, cumin and paprika in a blender.
2. Add the juice of half a lemon and whizz again. Taste and check the consistency. Add a little more lemon juice and/or olive oil and whizz until you get a nice smooth consistency. The amount of lemon juice you add really depends on how juicy or how big the lemon is you are using. Make sure to taste the hummus and add more or less as you like. Hummus is delicious added to a sandwich, served on some toasted pitta or used as a dip with red pepper and carrot batons.
