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.
