I usually make half a recipe at a time (half a can of beans) - cuz it makes lots!

Garlic Hummus

1 19oz can of chickpeas, drained
3-5 tbsp lemon juice (depending on taste)
1 tbsp olive oil
2 tbsp sour cream
2 tsp tahini (sesame paste)
2-4 garlic cloves (depends how garlicky you like it)
3 dashes seasoning salt
2-3 tbsp crushed chili's (if you like a bit of spice)

Using a food processor blend all ingredients together until smooth and creamy.

I play with the recipe all the time, I am not a big tahini fan so I use very little but find without it it is not quite right. I usually scoop the beans of the can rather then drain so I get a bit (jut a bit!) of the chickpea liquid in there too, helps it blend better.
