This Middle Eastern dip is best served with flatbread like pita or Turkish bread.

  1. Put the boiled chickpeas together with the tahini into a pot
  2. Squeeze the lemon, add the juice, the garlic clove and the olive oil to the mixture
  3. add about half a spoon of cumin and salt to taste
  4. Use a hand blender to bring it all together. Blend until very smooth.
  5. Add a bit of water if the consistency is too thick.
  6. Sprinkle a bit of paprika powder on top
  7. Serve cold.

    My only suggestion is to add a bit more salt than suggested if you like your hummus a bit salty.

    I had to make my own tahini and probably added too much of it. But yay! This is really tasty. Definitely not the last time I'm using this recipe.
