How to make Houmous
- 1 tin of chick peas
- 2 cloves garlic (minced)
- 1 tsp tahini
- 1 – 2 lemons
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- freshly ground black pepper
Drain the chickpeas and keep some of their liquid behind ( you will need about 2 tablespoons).
Put the chickpeas in a blender, add 2 cloves of garlic (minced), 1 tsp of tahini, juice of half a lemon, 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid, 3 tablespoons of olive oil, salt and pepper and blend until smooth or until you reach the consistency you like.
If the mixture feels and looks too stiff – add another tablespoon of the liquid you kept behind.
Add salt and pepper to taste and if you wish, add more lemon/olive oil.
Refrigerate and enjoy!
*It will keep well in fridge for up to a week.
