In a food processor, blend 1 cup diced cucumber (from about 1 peeled cucumber), 1 to 2 cloves garlic and 3 tbsp water until frothy.

Add 420g chic peas (either cookied or canned, make sure you drain and rinse them if they’re canned), 1 tablespoon tahini and 2 tbsp lemon juice. Add salt and pepper to taste.

Note: I added a bit of pepper and a tiny bit of seasoned organic sea salt. I try to avoid adding salts to food as often as possible.

It’s optional, but you can add any of the following: hot sauce, chopped olives, spring onions, chile powder or cumin to taste.

I garnished mine with cracked pepper!
