Wild Garlic Houmous

Wild garlic is appearing in woodlands and its tasiest when young, pick the young leaves or even the flower heads for frying as tempura! For this recipe you'll need a handful of leaves, they're rather potent so do a taste test of a single leaf before you throw the lot in your blender. If you're foraging wild, pick off the path (dogs and wandering humans) and make sure you wash everything thoroughly...

This is the EASIEST and TASTIEST recipe there is, who else loves houmous?!
