• 250g boiled (and cooled) chick peas
  • 75g olive oil
  • 50g lemon juice
  • 50g brine (this can be obtained from a tin of "cooked chickpeas in brine"! Alternatively, just mix some salt and water)
  • 50g Tahini (pulped roasted seseme seeds)
  • 1 small clove of garlic


Blend all ingredients in an electric blender. Done.


Try adding a roasted red pepper, a little corriander and a little cumin. If you're feeling dangerous, add a little chilli too.
