Because life's too short to stuff a mushroom.

Time: 15 minutes


  • 1 tin chick peas (drain but keep the liquid)
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • juice of ½ lemon
  • 1 tsp tahini
  • ½ tsp ground cumin
  • ½ tsp soy sauce


  1. Grind up the chick peas in a mouli or blender (mouli is better; it gives a smoother consistency).
  2. Add all the ingredients except the reserved liquor from the chick pea tin and mix well.
  3. Add enough of the chick pea juice to make it creamy, dippy or spreadable, depending on your intended use.
  4. Leave to ripen overnight in the fridge.

I like it in sandwiches. You can also use it as a dip, with raw vegetables and toasted strips of pitta bread.
