'HOW TO' HUMMUS

i heart hummus... but this is the first time i am trying this from scratch! i have soaked my chickpeas overnight and pre-cooked them for roughly an hour and a half. 

how? 

400g chickpeas
3 tablespoons of tahini
3 tablespoons of lemon juice 
2 garlic cloves
1/4 teaspoon of cumin
1/4 teaspoon of paprika
1/2 teaspoon of salt
1/2 cup of warm water

combine all ingredients (except the water) and put into a food processor. blitz until smooth. if required add the water tablespoon by tablespoon to thin out the mix. taste and season further if required. serve sprinkled with a dash of paprika and some crusty bread - yum!
