- 1 tablespoon of tahini or sesame paste
- the juice of half a lemon
- 1 tablespoon sweet paprika
- 1 glass of water
- 1/2 clove of garlic
- salt and pepper to taste
- extra virgin olive oil
Put the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and paprika in the glass of the blender. Add a splash of oil and half a glass of water and beat a little, until a texture of lumpy mash is left. Add more water if necessary to get that texture.
Put to the point of salt and pepper and place in a bowl. Crush the surface of the humus with the base of a soup spoon leaving some grooves, and then fill with a splash of oil.
It´s great with a little roasted sesame seeds and a little spicy paprika sprinkled on top.
