You may have to make this in 2 portions if you are using a small blender. This makes a lot of hummus but you are going to portion it out for the freezer so it will keep until you next need it.

Drain your cans of chickpeas, but keep the brine in a separate bowl.

Add your chickpeas and tahini paste to your blender.

Juice your two lemons and add the juice to the blender too.

Next add your ready chopped frozen garlic, cumin and salt.

Lastly add your ½ cup of brine and mix in the blender until you are happy with the consistency.

Ready for the Freezer.

Simply portion it out into very small freezer bags or small tubs and freeze.

3

Ready to eat.

Bring out and defrost, stir and your hummus is ready to eat. If it has been in the freezer for a while and is a little dry you can add a splash of water to it.

Make sure that reheated food is thoroughly cooked all the way through. If you’re cooking or reheating meat, cut it open with a clean knife to check it is piping hot all the way through – it should be steaming. www.foodsafe.eu
