To make, you will need:
200g Canned chickpeas
2tbsp Lemon juice (although I ended up with about half a lemon in!)
2/3 Garlic cloves
1tsp Gound cumin
Drain your chickpeas and empty into a food processor...
Simply add your lemon, chopped up garlic, cumin and salt.
Add more of any of the flavourings to adjust to your taste and after blending to a smooth consistency empty into a small serving dish and smooth down with the back of a spoon.
To serve, top with a little olive oil and a sprinkling of paprika (or a flavouring of your choice).
And dip away!
You can enjoy hummus with anything to hand although my favourites are warmed pitta bread or vegetable crudités. Mmm.
Although this wasn't a bad first attempt, it certainly wasn't up to scratch. There is an avid hummus debate (one of the big world issues at the moment I know) over how to achieve the perfect texture etc. It has even made a Guardian article! With mine you could still taste the crunch of the chickpea skins but I'm not sure I have the patience to sit and peel them all so I'll probably stick to abusing every offer supermarkets seem to always have on hummus in order to get my fix.
