Hummus

This clever method for making super-smooth hummus came from Samer, a spicerer from Lebanon. Heating the chickpeas makes them soft and easy to blend, adding iced water stops it cooking further, and the lemon at the end helps to whip it to a lovely creamy consistency. It’s the best we’ve ever tried - hope you like it too!
