I recently discovered hummus through a friend, and I am absolutely converted! I can’t believe that I have been missing out on this delicious, and incredibly versatile food. Ready-made hummus seems to be quite expensive, so I searched all over Pinterest (click here to go to my Pinterest) until I found a whole bunch of different recipes. The common thread is chickpeas, either tinned or cooked by yourself, tahini and seasoning.
After some trial and error I think I’ve managed to get a pretty good recipe down, and its very easy to make if you have a food processor or blender
In a food processor or blender, add the following:
- one tin of drained chickpeas
- 1/3 cup of tahini
- 1tsp crushed garlic or garlic powder
- a pinch of salt
- paprika to taste
- 1/2 cup of olive oil (or more if your hummus is too thick – it’s really up to you!)
Blend everything together – it’s as simple as that.
Hummus is so handy to have in the fridge and makes a delicious dip for veggies, toasted pita bread or whatever your heart desires. However, my favourite way to enjoy hummus is with toasted whole wheat bread, avocado, tomato and boiled eggs. Delicious!
