This is recipe is actually as easy as 1,2,3.....
You get to skip any artificial additives that store-bought hummus often has,
You get to flavour it to your likening,
You will skip buying another plastic container, which is not only an environmental win but storing hummus in a glass jar or ceramic bowl (if you don't eat the whole thing first go) makes it taste better for longer and is probably better for your body.
And just to top it off, you'll save a few £'s in the process.
So now that you're sold, here's how you do it.
Remember this is a creative experiment which requires:
Start with setting your intention to make the most tasty damn hummus you've ever tried,
Then go slow, enjoy the process and taste test as you go until you get the perfect balance of flavours.
- 1 can of chickpeas - some recipes say not to but I always rinse mine
- 1-3 tblspns of Tahini paste - start with 1 and add more if you love the flavour
- A few tblpsns of olive oil - add more to make it more creamy
- 1/4-1/2 of a lemon or lime, freshly squeezed
- 1/2-1 clove of garlic - I chop it up and lightly fry it with olive oil for 2-3 mins to take away the sting it can leave in my mouth & belly... and anyone else's mouth I might be getting involved in today..
- A pinch of salt and pepper to taste
- A dash of cayenne pepper or chilli flakes if you like a little spice
Add it all to a food processor
Buzz until it reaches your desired consistency
Taste test and add anything it needs more of
Repeat steps 2 and 3 until perfected to your liking
Put the mix into a jar or bowl and drizzle some more olive oil on top to serve
