400g tin of chickpeas drained, reserve the chickpea water
2 tbsp tahini paste, peanut butter is fine
juice of 1 lemon
3 garlic cloves, peeled & crushed
1 tsp smoked paprika
¼ tsp cayenne pepper
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
Place all of the ingredients in the food processor (apart from the reserved chickpea water) and switch the machine on. After 30 seconds or so, scrape down the sides of the processor with a spatula and switch it on again until you get a smooth hummus-like consistency.
Use the reserved chickpea water to thin the hummus a little if you need to.
Spoon the hummus into an airtight container and store it in the fridge.
