All I need is love… and hummus (｡♥‿♥｡). Chickpeas? Goooood! Tahini? Goooood! Cumin? Goooood! Cheap and easy to prepare, this Lebanese delight will rock your next aperitif.
All you need is to pass by the Marché bio des Tanneurs, Färm and La Grainerie to buy all the ingredients and then start cooking!
- 300g dried chickpeas
- 2 tbsp baking soda
- 150g tahini
- Fresh juice from 1 & 1/2 squeezed lemon
- ± 1 & 1/2 garlic cloves
- 2 tbsp olive oil
- Water depending on desired texture
- Cumin to taste
- Salt to taste
Soak chickpeas in cold water with 1 tbsp baking soda for at least 12 hours. Drain and rinse the chickpeas well.
Put them in a large pot and cover with clean water. Add the remaining tbsp baking soda. No salt is needed at this point. Cook for approximately 40 minutes, until the grains are very tender. Regularly skim the surface to remove foam. When cooked, drain the chickpeas and put them aside.
Process for 1 minute the tahini, lemon juice and olive oil in a food processor. The tahini’s colour must change.
Gradually add and process cheackpeas and water, until you get the desired texture. Add cumin, salt and garlic gloves to taste.
The hummus is ready, let’s dig in !
Serve hummus with a drizzle of olive oil and dash of paprika.
Delicious as an aperitif or in homemade tortillas, the recipe will soon be available on the blog (◍•ᴗ•◍)
