What is Hummus?
Just so we are all on the same page, let’s talk about what hummus is. If you aren’t familiar, hummus is a delicious spread or dip made from chickpeas, tahini, lemon, and spices. It’s commonly eaten in the Middle East and the Mediterranean.
1 (16-ounce) can of chickpeas, or garbanzo beans
1/4 cup liquid from the can of chickpeas
3 to 5 tablespoons lemon juice, depending on taste
1 1/2 tablespoons tahini, sesame paste
2 cloves garlic, peeled and crushed
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons olive oil
Handful of fresh parsley, optional garnish.
Steps to make it :
1.Gather the ingredients.
2.Drain the chickpeas and set aside the liquid from the can. Combine the drained chickpeas, lemon juice, sesame paste, crushed garlic, and salt in a blender or food processor. Add 1/4 cup of the reserved liquid from the chickpeas. Blend for 3 to 5 minutes on low until thoroughly mixed and smooth.
3.Place in a serving bowl and create a shallow well in the center of the hummus.
4.Add a small amount (1 to 2 tablespoons) of olive oil in the well. Garnish with parsley (optional).
Serve immediately with fresh, warm, or toasted pita bread (Lebanese bread), or cover and refrigerate.
Hummus can be refrigerated for up to 3 days and can be kept in the freezer for up to one month. Add a little olive oil if it appears to be too dry.
Tahini is a traditional and important part of the hummus recipe and cannot be substituted. However, it can be omitted.
