This homemade hummus recipe is quick and easy to make and so fresh.

5 ingredients and a blender (or food processor)

Drain and rinse 2 cans of cooked chickpeas add to them to the food processor.

Put a 160ml of the best olive oil you have, I use cold pressed extra virgin, into the food processor.

Crush 2 cloves of garlic into the food processor.

Put 4 tablespoons of Tahini into the food processor.

Put the juice of 1 lemon into the food processor.

Add 40 ml of cold water into the food processor.

Now switch on the food processor and let it blend all the ingredients together until smooth. If you find it it too stiff, slowly dribble in more cold water until the right consistency is achieved.

Turn out into a serving bowl and use a jester to put the jest of the lemon skin over the top.

Drizzle with a little olive oil and sprinkle with some cayenne pepper

Serve with flatbreads or use as part of a meal.
