I really like houmous, and have tried a variety of different ones from the supermarkets, as well as making my own sometimes. It is easy to make, using a tin of chickpeas, some Tahini (Sesame seed) paste, garlic, olive oil, lemon juice, and seasoning. I usually roast the garlic and olive oil in the oven, to soften it, then blend with the other ingredients. Sometimes, I make variations on a chickpea dip, adding onions, peppers or chilli.

I saw this 'Basics' one in Sainsburys priced at 75p a tub and was intrigued to try a 'cheap' version of it but right up until the last minute I almost set it aside and didn't purchase it to be totally honest with you cos I did think it would be gross being so cheap! The Packaging.... Clear plastic, round tub with a white cardboard 'sleeve' that slides on and off it. In white and bright orange writing on the top of the sleeve I'm told it's Sainsbury's Basics Houmous 'Less tahini still great for dipping' and there's a scribble in orange of what I assume ...
