Garlic free Houmous Recipe

I’m a big fan of houmous, especially as it’s so easy to make at home. I love garlic in my houmous but sometimes it can be good to have a garlic-free option for work. Like every other recipe you can add and remove what you like, there are no rules. I sometimes use garlic, jalapenos, red pepper, coriander or onion. Take the basics (chickpeas and tahini) and make this into your own creation.

So, for a simple but delicious garlic free houmous you will need: 
1 can of chickpeas
1 dessert spoon of tahini (if you use 2 cans of chickpeas then add 2 spoons of tahini, simple)
The juice of half a lemon
Salt and pepper (to taste)
Splash of olive oil
If the mixture becomes dry add more olive oil or water.
Pine nuts and sesame seeds to decorate.
