Enjoy this old favourite with this simple recipe.
Soak the chickpeas for 8 hours with the baking soda in cold water to cover.
Bring the chickpeas to a boil over high heat, reduce heat, cover, and cook until soft, about 45 minutes.
Drain, reserving a bit of the liquid.
Make the tahini sauce:
Blend in a food processor or blender the tahini, cold water, lemon juice, cumin, and garlic. Measure out 1/2 cup of this sauce for the hummus, saving the rest for salad dressings or sandwiches.
Put the drained chickpeas in a food processor and process to a rough puree, adding a little of the cooking liquid if necessary. The mixture should not be totally smooth.
Add the tahini sauce and process until just mixed.
Scrape the mixture into a bowl. Stir in the olive oil.
Serve with pita bread, whole-grain crackers, or carrot sticks.

Being a frugal spender, and somebody who shops online a lot, I'm keen to hear from others how they go about cutting through all the daily sales & marketing "BS" from retailers to uncover offers which in reality offer good value. I've grown tired of the charade where retailers try to sell us everything under the sun at an apparently "unbeatable" prices. So I've begun seeking out ways to determine where the best deals are online at any given time. Once I've found a seemingly good deal on something, my basic process afterwards to confirm this is as follow: 1. Run a quick google search to price compare it against what other stores are charging (i.e. ignore RRP and focus on the actual market price). 2. If the price looks competitive, try to find ways to get it for even less (i.e. any coupon codes offering discounts available, do I get any extra discount for signing up to the online store's free newsletter, etc). 3. Check shipping rates, as these can vary wildly for online orders between different retailers (often effecting the overall competitiveness of the product). There's also other techniques I use (like where to look for the best offers in the first place), but this is probably a good starting point for now. What about you?
