Houmous with veg sticks Recipe by Lesley Waters FOR THE SESAME FLATBREADS No mention of quantities for the yogurt or milk/water

I lovvvvvvvvvve houmus and could eat it every day, not this one though. I had to add about 4tbsp of water just to get a decent paste. Giving this to kids who don't like garlic would be a mistake, 2 raw cloves is not subtle for 1 tin of chickpeas.
