Houmous with Cumin Smoke Garlic

Houmous is a fantastic chickpea-based dip which can also be used as a butter or mayonnaise alternative, but we love just scooping a dollop up with crisp fruit or vegetables like peppers, carrots, celery or apples, the list is endless! Have fun adding different ingredients to your basic houmous recipe – we like this one…

2 x 400g cans of chickpeas (reserve the liquid and a few chickpeas for decoration)
4 tsp tahini
2 – 4 Cumin Smoked Garlic* Cloves, crushed
1 tsp crushed sea salt
6 tbsp quality extra virgin olive oil (plus extra for drizzling)
3½ tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice
Paprika (optional)
Coriander or parsley leaves (optional)

Rinse the chickpeas in cold water and tip into the food processor. Add the tahini, crushed garlic, salt, lemon juice and seven tablespoons of the reserved liquid from the cans. Turn on the food processor and slowly pour in the oil while it runs.
When the mixture is fully combined and smooth, tip it into a serving dish. Drizzle with some more extra virgin olive oil and decorate with a few whole chickpeas. Sprinkle with paprika and finely chopped coriander or parsley leaves, for colour.
