BASICS – HUMMUS

hummus1 hummus2Okay so I know there are plenty of recipes on how to make hummus, but this is my favourite way of doing it and if you haven’t already tried making it yourself, now is the time!
Hummus is great straight from the bowl, in a little container and take it to work with some cucumber or celery to dip in there or my favourite way is dipping crispy fried pita bread into the hummus..deliciiiious!

MY FAVOURITE HUMMUS
You will need:
1 can organic chickpeas, rinsed and drained (they taste the best and go super creamy)
1/4 cup hulled tahini
1 clove garlic
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
2 tablespoons olive oil + a little extra for the drizzle on top factor
good pinch of salt
a little water, for thinning down the hummus
dukkah, to sprinkle on top

Method:
This is the most important bit! Pour the tahini, garlic, salt, lemon juice and olive oil in a food processor, process until mixture is combined, if its looking a little thick, slowly pour in a little cold water until its a nice smooth mixture. Next, whilst the processor is still running, slowly add in your chickpeas until your mixture is looking nice and smooth, you don’t want it too thick and dry so add a little more water to loosen it if needed. This is the time where you can add your own little touch, whether that be nice smoked paprika, some fresh coriander or a pinch of ground cumin.

Pop the hummus mixture in a bowl, sprinkle over some dukkah and drizzle with olive oil.
