Super quick, easy and delicious hummus recipe
This recipe comes from one of my favourite cookbooks at the moment; Honey & Co. Ive tried lots of other hummus recipes before, but Ive never found one that tastes as good as this or is as easy! The recipe in the book used dried chickpeas, but I just use a can of chickpeas which means I can have it made in 5 minutes!
Variations: You can add any extra flavour you want to the hummus, I love using some fresh coriander.
Ingredients: Makes one large bowl full (enough for 4 people as a starter or mezze)
- 250g can of chickpeas
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 125g tahini paste
- 1/2 a tsp salt
- 1-3 tbsp lemon juice
Pour the contents of the tin of chickpeas (including the water) in a small pan and bring to the boil.
Turn off the heat and drain the chickpeas into a blender, reserving the cooking liquid. Add all the other ingredients to the blender along with around half of the reserved cooking liquid.
Blend to form a smooth paste (add more liquid if required!). At this point the mixture will be a bit runnier than you would expect but it will firm up in the fridge!
Cover with clingfilm and chill in the fridge for at lest half an hour.
Top with some paprika or cumin and fresh herbs. Serve with some flatbreads and enjoy!
