My Humble Hummus

I made this hummus last Saturday to take it to a friend for tapas style dinner. I do not enjoy the hummus you get from the supermarket , So I decided to spend 5 extra minutes making this simple, no twist hummus. This is the recipe:

Ingredients (This will make a bowl of hummus):

  • 1 can of Chickpeas
  • 3 tbsp tahini or sesame seed oil
  • 1/4 cup liquid from can of chickpeas
  • 3-5 tablespoons lemon juice (depending on taste)
  • Olive Oil
  • 2-3 cloves of Garlic (Depending how garlicky you want it to be)
  • Cumin (1-2 tbsp to taste)
  • Salt to taste

1. Drain chickpeas & rinse.

2. Combine the chickpeas, lemon juice, garlic, cumin, salt, tahini, and some water (around 4tbsp) in a food processor, and blend to a smooth paste.

3. Add more lemon, olive oil, cumin or salt to taste. Pour the mix into a mixing bowl. Drizzle olive oil and some cumin.
