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!
