Simply Hummous


This hummous is light and  citrussy. A splash  of Hot Samoan Boys Chilli Sauce is the secret ingredient. It gives it a fiery little kick.
Served with triangles of toasted pita bread or crackers, it makes a healthy snack.
For a skinnier dip don't dribble it with olive oil. It will still taste good.
And it will happily keep in the fridge for a few days.


1 can of chickpeas ( 400 grams)
1 clove of garlic (peeled and smashed)
3 tablespoons of tahini
juice of 1/2 lemon
juice of 1/2 orange
1 teaspoon of salt (or to taste)
a good dash of Hot Samoan Boys Chilli Sauce
a drizzle of olive oil


Drain the chickpeas
Reserve the liquid
In a food processor put the chickpeas, 2 tablespoons of the reserved liquid, and all the other ingredients except the olive oil.
Whizz till smooth.
If the mixture is too thick thin it down by adding a  little more of the reserved liquid.
Then adjust the seasoning and  if you like more fire, increase the amount of Hot Samoan Boys Chilli  sauce.

Put in a bowl and drizzle some olive oil over the top before serving with toasted triangles of pita bread.
