I cannot claim as much kudos for this recipe as I found it on Healthy Pages. It was created (in some part) by Giles (energylz)’s other half! Giles also happens to run this Reiki site. Thats the good thing about Healthy Pages, lots of the members are also webmasters of a whole host of interesting health and wellbeing sites!
Anyway, on with the recipe:
1 can of chick peas (or home cooked chick peas)
1 tablespoon of Tahini paste (light or medium cos dark is too heavy IMO)
Small clove of garlic (crushed or finely chopped)
Lemonjuice from 1/2 Lemon (or to taste)
1 tablespoon olive oil
Put all ingredients in a bowl and blend with one of those nice fast whizzy hand blender thingies.
Season with Salt and Pepper to taste
Add handful of black olives before blending
Change chick peas for butter beans
Adding fresh tomatoes before blending
Would be interesting to hear if anyone else has other Hummous variations!
