Method

Drain the chickpeas into a sieve set over a bowl or jug to catch the liquid. Tip the chickpeas, tahini, garlic and yogurt into a food processor or blender and whizz to smooth. Whizz in a tbsp of the chickpea liquid at a time until you have a nice consistency, then scrape into a bowl, stir in a squeeze of lemon juice and season to taste.

I make this regularly, but without the tahini paste. Also works as a great base for experiments with coriander leaves/powdered cumin/chilli/lime. Whatever! It's healthy and delicious!
