The finest hummus... the world!

I'm making this right now, and my mouth is watering at the prospect. Vicious with garlic and lemon, this is my idea of food heaven.

In the food processor, whiz up 250g of cooked chickpeas, 2 tbspns of tahini, 3 garlic cloves, 125ml lemon juice, and a pinch of ground cumin. If its a bit thick, add a little dribble of cold water.

And that's it.

Simple, gorgeous loveliness :-)

Of course, like all recipes, you could mess about with this to your hearts content. Mix in some fried onions for the last 'whiz', or some roasted peppers, or some olives, or some chilli. Add the zest from your lemon. Mix in a dollop of yogurt, or soft cheese. Drizzle with olive oil, pine nuts, paprika...

Serve with warm pitta breads, or carrot sticks, or in a sandwich, or on a jacket potato, and enjoy.

  1. Your recipe sounds delicious. Hubby isn't keen on this but I love it and ate loads when we went to Cyprus last November, I also ate lots of Taramasalata which hubby thinks is disgusting lol
