As promised, here is Karen's chickpea hummus recipe. Never really sure of the correct spelling for 'hummus', but that close enough.
|Chickpea hummus ingredients|
1 tin chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1 - 2 large cloves garlic
1/2 t ground cummin (optional)
juice of and pulp of 1 lemon (no pips)
1 T tahini
salt to taste
|Ingredients in the blender|
Add all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend till the desired smoothness.
It is quite a thick mixture so it might take a while and you will need to scrape down the sides quite often to get the mixture to blend.
Some other ideas:
You could add sundried tomatoes, or fresh herbs like basil or coriander for a variation.
You could also use a different type of bean instead of the chickpeas.
