This one is, by far, the best one I've had (I can't eat the stuff at all anymore <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="" style="border:0px solid;" title="greensad">; it totally messes with my gut):<br><br>
2 - 14oz tins chick peas<br>
Juice of a lemon<br>
6 cloves garlic (crushed)<br>
1 fl oz (30ml) tahini<br>
4 tsp (20ml) olive oil<br>
2 tsp (10ml) white wine vinegar<br>
6 fl oz approx. water<br>
Salt and fresh ground black pepper<br><br>
Liquidise the crushed garlic with the lemon juice, tahini, olive oil,<br>
white wine vinegar and half the water. Then stir in the drained chick<br>
peas and liquidise again. You may need to switch off the liquidiser and<br>
stir on several occasions. Add more water if necessary. Add salt and<br>
fresh ground black pepper to taste.<br><br>
Alternatively hummous can also be made in a food processor. Using no (or<br>
very little) water, this tends to produce a thicker, coarser textured<br>
hummous as preferred by some people.<br><br>
The ratio of tahini and garlic may be adjusted for personal preference.<br><br>
Tip: Very gently warm the lemon before squeezing.<br><br>
Serving suggestion:<br><br>
Serve on a plate with a dribble of olive oil, sprinkle of paprika and a<br>
black olive with some salad, crudites (sticks of carrot, cucumber,<br>
peppers, celery etc.) and hot pitta bread.
