  • How to make

400g canned chickpeas
1 lemon juice
1 or 2 garlic cloves, crushed 
1 tsp ground cumin
100ml tahini (sesame seed paste) (optional)
4 tbsp water
2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil

Step 1

To make the hummous, combine all the ingredients in a food processor and blitz until very smooth. If you don't have a food processor you can mash together in a bowl, but you will need to work a lot harder to get a smooth finish - it's a good workout!
