mildly spiced hummus

organic chickpeas - 1 x 398ml can
organic tahini - 1/2 cup
garlic - 5 cloves lightly chopped
lemon juice - 4 tbsp
smoked hot paprika - 1 tsp
black pepper - 1 tsp
sea salt - big pinch
extra virgin olive oil - approx 1 cup

Place all ingredients except oil in a small food processor. Drizzle a little oil over and process. With the food processor running add more oil until a smooth, but not runny paste is achieved.

Place in a serving bowl, drizzle a little oil over the top and a squeeze of lemon juice, then sprinkle with chopped fennel fronds.
