Chilli Humus

Hummus Spread (CII recipe)
1 can chickpeas with water
4 tbsp. tahini paste
2 garlic pods roasted in the oven
juice of half a lemon
1 medium green chili
olive oil (about 1/4 cup)

1.pop the chickpeas with its water into a blender and blitz
2. once the chickpeas reach a puree consistency add the tahini paste, green chili, garlic cloves, lemon juice and chili. Add a generous glug (1/4cup olive oil) and blend until smooth
3. if the hummus is too thick and dry add more olive oil.

the reason why the garlic is roasted in the oven, is to bring out the sweetness rather than having a very strong raw garlicky flavour in your hummus.

another great alternative is to add a bit of coriander leaves to the hummus it makes for a great party dip!
