Hummus recipe

I thought it would be fun to share some yummy kid friendly recipes time to time!

This Hummus dip is made weekly at our house.
Easy to whip up at the last minute too!

1 1/2 cups cooked chickpeas (or 1 can of ready to use)
3 tablespoons tahini (sesame seed paste)
3 cloves of garlic, peeled (if they are large - make it two or you'll get that garlic sting after taste)
1 teaspoon ground cumin
3 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons water

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and process until smooth.
I sometimes add more cumin at the end, to balance the garlic. Up to you.

Great on toast, in sandwiches, with sticks of vegetables or crackers.
Keep sealed in the fridge.
Enjoy and let me know how you go! (or any variations to the theme)
