Hummus! How I love thee… I used to make hummus all the time, but for some reason it has been probably a few years since I have made a batch. I have been getting tired of the same old veggie dips so I thought I would whip up something home made.
When I used to make hummus I never put in the Tahini (sesame seed paste) and it always tasted very good. This time I thought I would try it….well…it makes all the difference in the world. It tastes so authentic and has amazing flavour. This will definitely be a staple for me.
I didnt follow a recipe just put in flavours I like
1 can chickpeas drained and rinsed (keep the liquid to add in later)
1 clove of garlic (it was a big one)
4 tsp tahini
1 tbsp fresh lemon juice
1 tsp lemon zest
pinch of salt
Combine all ingredients in food processor/blender (I used the bullet) and add reserved liquid until desired smoothness. I like mine a little chunky.
Such a great snack. The flavour possibilities are endless…
