Lebanese hommus

Hommus is one of those exotic, really tasty - really healthy dips that everyone loves because it works so well for savoury snacks from vegetables to chips to a spread for sandwiches; and because it's made from chickpeas it's very high in protein.

The ingredients

  • 400g cooked chickpeas (I normally use canned chickpeas)
  • 3 tablespoons tahini sesame paste
  • 1/2 cup of olive oil
  • lemon
  • 1 garlic clove
  • cumin
  • paprika powder
  • salt

The method

This Middle Eastern dip is best served with flatbread like pita or Turkish bread.

   1. Put the boiled chickpeas together with the tahini into a pot.
   2. Squeeze the lemon, add the juice, the garlic clove and the olive oil to the mixture.
   3. Add about half a spoon of cumin and salt to taste.
   4. Use a hand blender to bring it all together. Blend until very smooth.
   5. Add a bit of water if the consistency is too thick.
   6. Sprinkle a bit of paprika powder on top.
   7. Serve cold.
