Hi Guys. It has been a while since we've added anything to the blog. So I thought I'd start contributing to the world of hommus/hummus again. Here's a little recipe that my mum uses for quick simple hommus. Of course you can use dried chickpeas and soak them over night for a more authentic hommus, but when you have people coming over and you need something in a rush this is perfect.

2 Tins of chickpeas
2 teaspoons of fresh diced garlic  (if you use the minced garlic in a jar, double it)
2 large Tablespoons of Tahini
1 Tablespoon of olive oil
1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar
A decent sprinkle of salt
And as much water as you need to make it a good consistency. Add say ¼ cup to start.
If you want to add some spice add tobasco or jalapenos to the mix.

Directions:Drain chickpeas, place in blender.
Dice garlic and add to blender with Tahini, olive oil, balsamic, and water.
Blend until a decent consistency, add further water if need be.
Once a good consistency add salt and further balsamic to taste.
I usually add olive oil and some smoked paprika to the top of the hommus once I’ve put it in a serving bowl.
It’s yum. It’s my mum's recipe.
