Middle Eastern Dip
Hailing from the Middle East, Hummus is my favourite dish to have, no matter what time of the day. It's a tasty dip that can be served with pita, bread, carrots - anything. And the best part is that it's so easy to make.

Here's the recipe I use whenever I have a craving for authentic Hummus. It's so much healthier and more delicious than what the supermarkets sell.

hummus, middle eastern, recipe, delicious
Hummus is best served with warm pita on the side


INGREDIENTS
200G Chickpeas
2 large cloves of garlic (alternatively, use 1/2 tsp garlic paste)
2 tbsp Tahini Paste (or add some sesame seeds and olive oil)
2 tbsp Olive Oil
4-5 tbsp fresh lemon juice (or till you think the taste is alright)
1/2 tbsp Cumin powder
Paprika, salt and pepper to taste

METHOD
Drain the chickpeas and place them in a food processor; keeping 1/2 a teaspoon of the preserved liquid.
Add the other ingredients (except the paprika, salt and pepper) and blend till you get a smooth paste with less/no chunks.
Top it off with paprika and some salt and pepper sprinkled over the hummus and serve with warm pita bread.

And the whole procedure takes a good 5 minutes - that's all there is to it!
