Home-Made Hummus

As some of you may know my husband is Mediterranean, making this one of the recipes I make on a regular basis.
Hummus (pronounced "hum-mus") is quick and simple to make, and literally takes just a few minutes to prepare.  

The recipe I want to show you is a basic one I work from. You can add more lemon, garlic or tahini to your own taste.

You will need the following, together with a food processor to blend the ingredients together;

* Tinned chickpeas
* Lemons 
* Fresh Garlic 
*Tahini (Pureed sesame seed paste)
* Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Step 1 -  
Take one clove of garlic and crush into your food processor.

Step 2 -
Juice 1 lemon and add to the garlic.

Step 3 -
Drain the chickpeas (keep the liquid in a jug, you can add a little of this later if you want a smoother texture Hummus). Put the drained chickpeas into the food processor.

Step 4
Add one table spoon of Tahini into the food processor along with a drizzle of Extra Virgin Olive Oil.

Step 5 -
The fun bit.......Wizz it all together. 
I like to keep mine a little grainy; you can blend it until completely smooth by adding a little of the liquid you kept in step 3.

Hummus can be served with breadsticks, olives, carrots sticks, warm pitta breads - basically what ever you desire! You can also sprinkle a little paprika on for a warm kick.

Enjoy xx
