Dinner idea: Hummus

1 (14-ounce) can of chickpeas, drained

1 garlic clove, crushed

5 tablespoons tahini*

Pinch of salt

Juice of 1 lemon

4 tablespoons olive oil, plus extra for drizzling

Small handful of parsley, chopped

Place chickpeas, reserving a handful, with 2 tablespoons of water in a food processor and blend. Add garlic, tahini, salt, lemon juice and olive oil, and blend for at least 2 minutes to a smooth, fine paste, adding more water if necessary. Crush the reserved chickpeas with the back of a fork and add to the paste. Transfer to a plate or wide bowl and stir in the chopped parsley, then spread out with the back of a spoon so that the surface will hold shallow splashes of olive oil. Pour extra oil over the top and serve.
