A side of hummus always makes a good side dish I reckon, or even as a starter avec some pitta bread.

I was browsing around in Whole foods and stumbled across a jar of tahini and decided I will buy it to make some hummus. This recipe beats those you eat at Lebanese/ arabic places, plus its healthier. I don’t know about you, but I usually find the hummus from restaurants drenched in oil.

You will want to give this a go. All you need:

a can of chickpeas (400g)

2 tablespoons of tahini

2 crushed garlic cloves

1 teaspoon of salt

2 tablespoon of olive oil

2 tablespoon of lemon

one radish

coriander or parsley leaves to finish



1-Rinse your chickpeas in cold water and drain

2- add to the food processor and add all ingredients to it and give it a good mix until it forms a smooth paste.

3-You can add more oil/ lemon juice to taste

4-tip into your serving dish, drizzle a little olive oil

5- add your slices of radish and garnish with coriander/parsley

That is it,  easy peesy lemon squeezy, and it goes great with a side of crusty bread or some carrot sticks 🙂

It makes a great starter dish if you have guests coming round and you need to keep them entertained whilst you are finishing the remaining touches to your main or it is taking a little longer than expected to cook. We all know that is often the case (well it with me).
