2 large garlic cloves
Juice from 1 lemon

2 cans chickpeas, drained and rinsed
Sea salt & black pepper, to taste
1-2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
1/2 tsp ground paprika
1/4 cup roughly chopped cilantro

1. Place the tahini, garlic, lemon juice, water and date in a high-speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth and uniform, about 1-2 minutes.
2. Add the chickpeas and blend, until you get a very smooth hummus. Season with salt and pepper to taste and blend again.
3. Place the hummus in a flat bowl and top with extra virgin olive oil, paprika and cilantro.
4. Serve immediately with pita bread or refrigerate until needed. Enjoy!
