I love hummus. It’s great with nachos, carrot sticks, cucumber, with falafel, in a kebab, I could go on! But sometimes it can be hard to buy a decent one. Often I end up picking up one with bits in it or unblended chickpeas, or one that tastes really salty. Recently I tried to make my own. It was easier than I thought and tasted great! Give it a go and have yourself some Fork ‘N Tasty Hummus!
- 1 tin of chickpeas, drained but keep the liquid
- 2 tablespoons of tahini
- 2 tablespoons of olive oil
- 1 clove of garlic, peeled
- Juice from 1 lemon
- Teaspoon of cumin
- Teaspoon of paprika
- Salt and pepper to taste
- You’ll need a blender of this one. Put everything into a blender or food processor and blend until smooth. That’s it! If you find it is struggling to blend add in some of the chickpea water to loosen things up.
- Taste it and add more seasoning if you need to. A little more salt and pepper or lemon juice can make all the difference. Dress with some parsley and a dash of paprika if you like.
