Hommus Dip


Forget about the store bought stuff and get out that food processor for the best hommus dip on earth.  Enjoy with cut up carrots or celery or crackers.  The best way I like to eat it is a piece of Lebanese bread with a spread of hommus and then a piece of Swiss cheese and then an olive, close up and enjoy.  My hubby spreads it on the lunch rolls instead of butter.  You can use 250g of dried chickpeas instead - soak overnight in water to cover and then cook over medium heat until soft, drain and use as the recipe suggests.

1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tab Tahini (you can buy this from Safeway/Coles health food section or BAS Foods Victoria Street Brunswick near Victoria Funerals - I can buy for you if you like)
1 teas cumin powder
1 garlic clove, crushed
Juice of 1 lemon
1/2 teas chilli paste
Salt/pepper
1/2 tab olive oil
Water as needed for desired consistency

Place all ingredients in a food process and pulse until all combined.
