Hummus – chickpeas and olive oil

I made this once to take for a share table at a teacher’s development day at kindy and everyone loved it. My son will eat it any day and most people who try it comment how great it tastes.

When you make it at home you can go heavy on the flavour you like best. In our house we like more lemon juice and Evoo and less tahini.

1 can of drained chick peas
juice of 1 lemon
2 tbs of tahini paste
salt and pepper to taste
1 tsp cumin
1 clove of garlic crushed
3 tbs Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Put everything in a blender and mix until smooth, give it a taste and see if you need to anything. I usually add a little extra lemon juice. 🙂

Serve in a bowl with a drizzle of olive oil and some vegetable sticks and crackers (check out my recipe for my seeded crackers )

Also goes great on burgers, yiros, sandwiches or as a side to a main meal.
