Prep time: 5 minutes

Prep notes: Need a mixer of some sort - can be hand held or a blender 



1 jar/tin chickpeas 

1 dessert spoon tahini (sesame paste)

1 clove garlic crushed

Juice of 1 lemon

Pinch of cumin or paprika (optional)

Pinch of sea salt (unrefined)


1 dessert spoon extra virgin olive oil



Add all the ingredients (except water) together in a bowl (if using a hand mixer) or blender and mix together.

Slowly add water to reach desired consistency while continuing to mix.

Some prefer a thicker hummus - personally I like to quite smooth so can add half to a full glass of water. Experiment with quantities to suit your taste...

serve with drizzle of olive oil on top - dip in some tasty carrots, cucumber, raw courgette, cauliflower heads... a great tasty lunch or snack to put in a tupperware and take to the office!
