Preparation time: 5 minutes
Since the Ramadhan season is coming soon, we wanted to start our recipe section with a Middle-Eastern inspired dish. Who doesn’t love hummus, anyway? Its fluffy and flavourful textures are a big hit around the world, simply because hummus is highly modifiable to local flavours!
For this recipe however, we want to focus on the original fuss-free hummus. Best part is – no cooking is involved, all you need is a blender or food processor. Ready? Let’s get cooking!
What we listen to:
What we need
• 2 garlic cloves, mashed and roughly chopped
• 2 15-oz cans of chickpeas, drained
• 2/3 cup of tahini
• 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 1/2 cup water
• 1/4 cup olive oil (plus more for garnishing)
• 1/2 teaspoon of salt
• Some leftover chickpeas for garnishing
How we do it – Step by Step
Step 1: In a food processor, combine the garlic, chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, 1/2 cup water, and olive oil. Process until smooth.
Step 2: Start adding salt half a teaspoon at a time and process again. Remember to taste each time you add salt so that you don’t add too much!
Step 3: Scoop it out and place it on a serving dish. Drizzle some olive oil and place the leftover chickpeas on top as garnish. Voila, you’re done!
Want to spruce things up a little? Add any vegetable or nut you want! We recommend beet or green peas.
