Homemade Humous

Ingredients (10 servings)

1 x 400 g tin of chickpeas
1 small clove of garlic
1 tablespoon tahini
1 lemon

extra virgin olive oil


Drain and tip the chickpeas into a food processor.
Peel and add the garlic, then add the tahini, a good squeeze of lemon juice and 1 tablespoon of oil.
Season with a pinch of sea salt, then pop the lid on and blitz.

Use a spatula to scrape the humous down the sides of the bowl, then blitz again until smooth.

Have a taste and add more lemon juice or a splash of water to loosen, if needed, then transfer to a serving bowl.
Serve with sliced crunchy veg, such as carrots, cucumbers, radishes or peppers, and some warm flatbreads.
