Home made houmous is very quick and easy to make and tastes so much better than most shop bought stuff.
I 400g can chickpeas drained
I dessert spoon of Tahini Paste
Juice of between half and a whole lemon added to taste
Finely chopped fresh garlic, I used about half a clove but sometimes more.
All the ingredients were blitzed together for a couple of minutes with a hand held blender.
It is best made a few hours before eaten so that the garlic flavour can permeate.
I rarely use salt and prefer to add freshly ground black pepper just before eating.
I divide the mixture between several ramekin dishes and freeze some. To part of the mixture I added smoked paprika to taste. The other portion is garnished with fresh mint
