I made some yesterday and I measured everything except the lemon juice. Maybe that's the problem, my lemon was too juicy, but the lemon is overpowering almost everything else. It needs to be dairy free, I know some recipes include yogurt. Please share your favourite recipes and I'll try them instead.

My tip is to blend the lemon juice with the tahini before you add the other ingredients, and to use water at the end to get the consistency that you are looking for.

Thanks, I did both of those things. I even peeled all of the chickpeas!

Ottolenghi - www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.epicurious.com/recipes/member/views/-yotam-ottolenghi-sami-tamimis-basic-hummus-52427391/amp - I cut the amount of tahini though as I’m not that much of a fan. Really delicious.

I actually prefer a dollop of peanut butter in mine over tahini (used it as a substitute once and never looked back)

I've got my own recipe, where I was trying to recreate the hummus we got in Egypt which I loved (slightly more runny but almost a little fluffy and super tasty).

You do need a blender that's up to green smoothies.

1 tin chickpeas (drain the water and measure it in)
8 tbs water from can
3 tbs tahini
6 tbs good olive oil
3 tbs lemon juice
1 clove garlic (or three roasted)
Salt

Pulse then blend. Adjust seasoning.

Had anyone ever used chickpea flour for hummus? Ive heard it can be very good but can't get it to work
