Place chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice and any other *optional ingredients into a food processor on high. Whilst processing, slowly pour the olive oil into the processor until the hummus reaches your desired texture and consistency (if adding ingredients like roasted or boiled carrots, you probably won’t need as much oil due to the moisture in the veg). Add water as necessary to thin it out if it is too thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Store in an airtight container in the fridge for several days or portion and store in the freezer until desired (always defrost in the fridge).
Serve with sticks of carrot, celery, cucumber, capsicum, green beans and grainy crackers or use in place of butter or other spreads on salad sandwiches, rolls, wraps, pita breads.
*Optional ingredients: once you have made the basic hummus, you can get creative and add other flavours with fresh or dried herbs (oregano, basil, parsley, coriander), spices (paprika, cumin, turmeric), sundried tomatoes, dried chili flakes, roasted or boiled carrots or beetroots.
