2 garlic cloves, crushed
1 tbsp chopped coriander (cilantro)

method

1. To make the hummus, firstly drain the chickpeas (garbanzo beans), reserving a little of the liquid. Put the chickpeas (garbanzo beans) and liquid in a food processor and process, gradually adding the reserved liquid and lemon juice. Blend well after each addition until smooth.

2. Stir in the tahini (sesame seed paste) and all but 1 teaspoon of the olive oil. Add the garlic, season to taste and blend again until smooth.

3. Spoon the hummus into a serving dish and smooth the top. Drizzle the
remaining olive oil over the top, garnish with chopped coriander (cilantro) and olives. Set aside in the refrigerator to chill while you are preparing the toasts.

4. Place the slices of ciabatta (Italian bread) on a grill (broiler) rack in a single layer.

5. Mix the garlic, coriander (cilantro) and olive oil together and drizzle over the bread slices. Cook under a hot grill (broiler), turning once, for about 2 - 3 minutes, until golden brown. Serve the toasts immediately with the hummus.
