It’s taken me a while to get round to making hummus. I bought tahini ages ago but it’s been sitting in my cupboard doing nothing. Since it’s a lazy Sunday I’ve finally got a chance to try making it, and use up some of the leftover bits in my fridge. Everyone has that random jar of sun dried tomatoes they opened once for a recipe and didn’t know what to do with the rest. 

1) in a food processor whizz up 2 dessert spoons tahini, 1 tin of rinsed chickpeas, 5 sun dried tomatoes, 1 large clove of garlic, 1 tsp of smoked paprika, 1 tsp cumin seeds.

2) after 2 mins, add a drizzle of olive oil whilst blending. I found it didn’t need as much as normal recipes call for. 

3) leave the processor whizzing for a couple of mins.

Spoon out into a bowl and sprinkle with smoked paprika. Chop up some pitta and bake for 10 mins to create the perfect dipping aid!
