Quick and Healthy Hummus Recipe

Do you know that it takes only 5 minutes to prepare a healthy hummus with a tin of chickpeas?

Of course, if you use dry chickpeas soaked overnight and boiled, the result will be nicer.. but for those moments where you need something last minute, this recipe will save you!

All the ingredients (excluded the lemon and fresh coriander) can be stored in your pantry so buying a few tins of chickpeas and a jar of tahini in advance can be very handy.

I always use my blender (here my model) but if you don’t have a blender, don’t worry, you can still make a good hummus pressing the chickpeas with a fork or potato masher.
