This takes 5 minutes to make and is so delicious you’ll never buy ready prepared again.
1 400g tin chick peas, drained
1/2 tsp dried garlic powder or 1/2 clove fresh garlic
juice of 1/2 lemon (you may need a little more)
1 tsp of tahini (sesame paste)
approx 150ml olive oil (you may need a little more)
pinch of salt
pinch of paprika or chopped herbs to garnish (garnish)
Place all ingredients in a food processor or use a stick blender to puree everything together. Check the consistency and seasoning and add more olive oil/lemonjuice/salt to your liking.
Fresh houmous keeps in the fridge for up to 5 days.
Note – you can add extra flavourings of your choice to the base recipe such as roasted red peppers, harissa, pesto …. experiment away!
