Hummous

Ingredients

250g boiled (and cooled) chick peas
75g olive oil
50g lemon juice

50g Tahini (pulped roasted seseme seeds)
1 small clove of garlic

Method

Blend all ingredients in an electric blender. Done.

Variations

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