My foolproof hummous

Yes it is essentially mushed up chick peas but as anyone who has tried to produce it will know, hummous can be hard to perfect. This recipe is foolproof – I developed it myself!
What you need
50g dried chick peas.
Juice of one lemon.
Two tbls tahini paste.
Four tbls olive oil.
Two cloves of garlic.
Salt and pepper.

What you do

Soak the chick peas overnight then boil them for two hours until soft. Let them cool in the cooking water. Drain and retain cooking water.
Combine all the other ingredients in a food processor, adding cooking water as required to create the right consistency.
Season with salt and pepper.
