Yes, strong chickpea, slight sesame (tahini) taste, hint of garlic and whatever else you decide to add. I know you are in the Netherlands so I don't know if chickpeas have water in the cans, but if they do, reserve it to add to the hummus. Here's exactly what I did.

Set up food processor
Drain water off of one 12 ounce can of chickpeas and set water aside
Put chickpeas in food processor
add about 1/3 of the water from the chickpeas
Chop with food processor
Add two spoonfuls of tahini paste
Blend again
Add more juice from the can, another half a can of chickpeas (too strong tahini with the spoonfuls I used) and juice as necessary plus three squirts of lemon juice
Add teaspoon of salt
Chop three green onions add to mixture
Take 4 cloves of roasted garlic (I had difficulties extracting the garlic from the bulb)
Mix it all up and enjoy.

If you use two cans of chickpeas (ours are like 80 cents each) you can add additional chickpeas as necessary. It's a taste and go thing, as a lot of things are.

Good luck.
