Classic Chickpea Hummus

What I love about making your own hummus is being able to choose the amount of oil that's added. Years ago, back in 2010 I think I attended a nutritional therapist (I wasn't one back then but was impressed) and she gave me a tip to change to butterbeans as they have a more appealing taste than the chickpeas. That may be an option to try if you are planning on adding more hummus to your meal planning. I use this as my basic, I remember she rattled off the basic ingredients to me, which I quickly wrote down and I've been using this or variations since.
Basic Chickpea Hummus
1 x 400g tin organic chickpeas, rinsed and drained
2 tbsp light tahini
1 tbsp extra virgin walnut oil / olive oil
100ml filtered water
1 tbsp lemon juice
1 minced garlic clove
1/2 tsp each sea salt flakes (or Himalayan salt) & freshly ground black pepper

Optional Toppings:
Sprinkle a pinch or two of ground coriander

Blend all the ingredients until smooth. Adjust the seasoning and lemon juice to your liking.

Serve with your fav crackers or crudities, as in the photo above, such as sliced cucumber, red and yellow pepper and celery.
