Hummus is an Arabic dip/spread made from cooked, mashed chickpeas/garbanzo beans, blended with tahini (sesame seeds paste), Olive oil, lemon juice, salt, garlic parsley. It is a wonderful snack or appetizer, and is great with warm pita bread or veggies.

An easy home-made Hummus, scooped with pita, celery/carrot sticks. Also a delicious accompaniment to falafel, grilled eggplant/Zucchini and Kalamata Olives.

You will need:

Mini Processor to Grind and below ingredients

1 19 oz Can/ 500gms of Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans

3 tbsp tahini paste

Few strings of parsley

2 medium size garlic cloves

1 tbsp lemon juice

3 tablespoon of good quality olive oil, divide into 2 and 1 tbsp

Salt -to taste

Water (for smooth consistency)

For garnishing: Olives, Paprika powder, Chopped parsley

In case of using dried chickpeas, wash and soak chickpeas over night and pressure cook for 3 whistles. Drain all water and use.

For coarse texture Hummus, Pulse all the ingredients with 2 tbsp olive oil in food processor. For a smooth Hummus, add few tablespoon of water and grind.

Transfer to a shallow bowl/dish, make a kind of well in between and drizzle 1 tbsp olive oil. Sprinkle paprika powder. I love to arrange Hummus with Kalamata Olives.

Best when served with:

Home baked warm pita bread/chips

Carrots & celery Sticks

Cucumber Roundels


Happy Cooking
