Preparation Time 10 minutes
Cooking Time none
Serves 6- 8
  • 400 g  tin of chickpeas (drained)
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 crushed garlic clove
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 2 tablespoons dark tahini
  • 1- 2 tablespoon water from chick peas to thin down



(1)  Place the chickpeas, lemon juice crushed garlic cumin and tahini into  a blender and whiz until slightly chunky, adding a little water to get to desired consistency.

(2)  I like my consistency to be slightly chunky but I now prefer it a little more runny than the one I have pictured here ( made in early December adn sometimes my taste changes). A chunky consistency is good for Crudites.


Serve with: –

Black and green olives, carrots cut into batons or any other vegetable cut in bite sized pieces
