    There is a dip brand at woollies called 'Chris's' I buy them because they are preservative free

    Default Preservative free (or close to) hommus?

    Step 1: add 4 TABLEspoons of tahini (I was using teaspoon quantities before which could explain dramas to date), lemon and garlic to mixing bowl

    Step 2: mix until you think, "sh!t - this stab mixer was a wedding present and that makes it 13 years old. I don't feel old enough to have been married for 13 years. I hope the motor on this mixer thing doesn't burn out before this is done". Or until ingredients are combined to a smooth paste. Whatever comes first.

    Step 3: add yogurt and mix until smooth, or start thinking midlife-crisis-like thoughts. Whatever comes first.

    Step 4: open, drain and rinse a can of organic chickpeas whilst thinking that the regular canned chickpeas had better have been marinated in organophosphate pesticides to justify the price difference. Add overpriced chickpeas to mixture and keep mixing.

    Step 5: add olive oil and mix until mixture looks smooth and less like brickies mortar.

    Step 6: think "didn't I buy a jar of cumin for this?" Add a random amount of cumin. Mix. Taste. Regret adding cumin. Swear never to stray away from an Elijah's mum recipe ever again because what seems like culinary initiative at the time always turns out badly. Very badly. Apologise to organic chickpeas for doubting them and for straying off the path of cooking righteousness.

    Step 7: add more lemon juice to try and salvage effort. Mix. Taste. Cry. Remember a domestic expert told you her secret hommus recipe has honey. Add a random sized dollop of honey. Mix. Taste. Victory!!

    It tastes good! DS (age 2) happily licked all the leftovers in the bowl and off the stab mixer whilst saying "mmm hommus" and "ooo sharp. Careful." So it must taste like hommus. And I even thought to switch off and unplug the stab mixer before giving it to toddler to lick. Mother of the year!!

    That sounds delicious! A little angsty, but delicious! ☺

    I tried making hommus a while back too, and it was a fail. Might have to give it another go.

    Do it! Don't forget to add wine (for the cook, not the hommus).

    I don't know why there is yoghurt in the recipe, never put yoghurt in my hummus. Might ask the Lebanese people at the restaurant next time.

    This recipe is brilliant and doesn't have any yoghurt. I haven't tried it with yoghurt before but can imagine it would taste quite good?
