Place the chickpeas in a food processor with the garlic, tahini, lemon juice and cumin and blitz to a paste. Pour in 4-5 tbsp extra virgin olive oil and whizz again to make a creamy puree.

If the texture is quite stiff, add enough water to loosen and whizz again. Taste and adjust the seasoning. You may want to add more lemon juice or more tahini. Just before serving sprinkle with a little paprika and more extra virgin olive oil.
