Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my many adventures in food. Hope you find something that takes your fancy. 

HUMMUS

A taste of the Middle East with a little less hassle than the traditional version. Rather than dried chickpeas, this uses canned. With the help of a food processor you can make tasty hummus within minutes. Great for an appetiser & in my house, movie snacks. I would recommend having with the Eastern Style Focaccia, flatbread or pita bread. 

Ingredients:

  • 3x400g Canned Chickpeas (Reserving The Liquid Of 1 Can)
  • 4 Tbsp Olive Oil
  • 4 Garlic Cloves (Finely Chopped)
  • Juice Of 3 Lemons
  • 4 Tbsp Tahini
  • 2 Tbsp Sea Salt Flakes
  • Paprika, Dried Thyme (Garnish)

Method:

  1. Add the chickpeas and and half of the liquid to a food processor. Blend to achieve a smooth texture, using more of the liquid and olive oil as you go.
  2. Add the garlic, lemon juice, tahini and sea salt and blend once more until thoroughly mixed and smooth. 
  3. Spoon into bowls topped with the paprika and dried thyme & further olive oil if you wish.
