Hummus is so easy to make, specially from canned chickpeas, which are as nutritious as the dried version and a great store cupboard staple. So skip the shop-bought stuff and make this lusciously creamy and light recipe yourself in just 5 minutes. Serve with crunchy vegetables or lovely warm wholemeal pita or flatbreads. I prefer the traditional version, but you can use this as a base recipe for various added flavours and varieties.
Serves 6-8 as a dip
