So instead I make a very quick hummus.
The ingredients are so simple:
1 tin chick peas
2 tbsp tahini
finally pureed garlic
A drop of olive oil
Good squeeze of lemon
I make my hummus in a blender, as I don't have a food processor, and I find that it works very well.
I rinse the chickpeas in a sieve then put them into the blender.
I give them a good whizz in the machine, sometimes I do need to stop and stir them.
I add a little water and olive oil , followed by the tahini and garlic.
I taste the hummus at this stage, and then add salt and lemon juice so it is just as I like it.
This hummus is a perfect standby, for the time you have unexpected visitors and want to amaze them with your culinary skills, just don't let them watch you make it in the kitchen!
It is delicious with crudites, toasted pitta bread, or of course, a fantastic homemade flat bread.
