So I had this tin of chickpeas sitting on my shelf and decided to make some houmous. However, it had to be something simple because I didn't have much else. I found this recipe and gave it a try. In all honesty I did stray from Erin's true recipe, but its close enough to say it was a GREAT basis to start with. I added some extra virgin olive oil (rather than the bean liquid) and salt. Instead of the chilli, I added 1 tsp of cayenne pepper. After blending it all, I tasted it, and added a few shakes of spice as necessary. Also, its a good idea to cover this with clingfilm and then allow it to sit in the fridge for at least an hour so that all the flavours can mellow and mix together!
