Once you have prepared your chickpeas, you’re just minutes away from having a bowl of classic houmous.


  • 240 g cooked chickpeas
  • 2 garlic cloves, peeled and crushed
  • 3 tbsp


Place the cooked chickpeas in a blender or food processor with the crushed garlic, tahini, ground cumin, lemon juice and a pinch of salt and blitz.

To serve, place in a bowl, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle
