Pour chick peas into bowl and cover with plenty of cold water and leave to soak overnight.
The water will change to a yellow colour, this is perfectly normal.
Drain the chick peas.
Place chick peas into a pot with 2 pinches of salt and black pepper, dash of sesame seed oil and dash of olive oil.
Cover with cold water.
Boil for about 15-20 minutes until quite soft.
Place cooked chick peas into blender, add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini, dash sesame oil and 1 tblspn olive oil, salt and pepper.
Place lid on blender and blend adding more olive oil to desired consistency.
If using hommus as a dip the consistency should be quite grainy, if using as sandwich spread blend till smooth.
