Grind up the spices in a mortar and pestle, and toast over a medium heat for around 1 minute.

This releases the oils of the spices making them more aromatic.


Pre-heat the oven and roast the garlic, squash and ginger with a touch of oil for around 30 minutes.


Once softened, blend and then add lemon juice, chickpeas and tahini. Pulse until a smooth texture is created, taste and season.


Sprinkle the spice mix over the houmous and mix roughly with a spoon. Drizzle over a little olive oil and serve.
