    Put in small dishes with a dash of olive oil. Serve it with pitta bread (of course!) or toasted baguette slices.

Remarks:

Quantities of olive oil, tahina (sesame paste) and lemon juice can be altered to taste.

If houmous is not being served immediately, it must be refrigerated with a fine coating of olive oil on top, in a sealed container otherwise it will darken. You can also add a little vitamin C.

Cooking tip: instead of water in step #3, you can use the water in the can of chickpeas.
