  • 2 fat garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 3 tbsp Greek yogurt
  • 3 tbsp tahini paste
  • 3 tbsp extra-virgin olive oil, plus extra

    Oval in shape, with a pronouced bulge on one end, lemons are one of the most versatile fruits…

  2. Season the houmous generously, then add the coriander and pulse until roughly chopped. Spoon into a serving bowl, drizzle with olive oil, then serve.

I've tried making hummus before it has been bland and tasted a bit like feet... ...this was totally different! I halved the recipe as was just to go with falafel and pitta for dinner. Stuck to almost exact quantities and wouldn't change a thing. Still had leftovers for work and school packed lunches the next day. Yum.

I found it very, very sour so I pour it down the toilet. I normally added 1 lemon per 3 cans of chickpeas. Too bad that this time I followed this recipe rather than my experience.

V. fast and easy. Had to tweak it a bit- used 1 can of chickpeas and ground coriander as I did not have any fresh. Also used sesame seeds and sesame oil as I had no tahini and I added a green chilli. Delicious!

Absolutely loved it! Added the full whack of lemon juice, freshly squeezed. Very zingy and super tasty!

made this last night, everyone really liked it but i thought that there was a little bit too much lemon! it does make a lot, but i seperated the lot down to 3 differant dips with added extra stuff in each one. went down very well.

forgot to say that the recipe makes too much; we ran out of a big bag of doritos before we ran out of dip.
