RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Ingredients Info:
  • minced garlic – you can either use store-bought minced garlic (my favourite option!) or mince a clove of garlic yourself
  • chickpeas – are a type of legume also known as garbanzo beans. Drain and rinse the chickpeas before using.
  • tahini – you can buy either hulled or unhulled tahini (I use Mayvers brand). I use hulled tahini in my hummus as it gives it a beautiful creamy flavour.
  • lemon juice – use the juice from 1 lemon (approximately 30ml).
  • olive oil – this makes the hummus dip super creamy and smooth. I like to drizzle a little extra over when serving.
  • sea salt – season to your liking.
