    I found the tahini to be too overpowering for my liking (maybe my scales were being funny?). I ended up adding more garlic, another can of chickpeas plus some of the canned liquid. I toasted some diced garlic to sprinkle on top with some chilli flakes.

    Does anyone know how to make the hummus smooth?  Do I need to add more oil or should I soak my own chick peas rather than tinned?
