Some of you have requested this recipe, so here it is. I usually make a big prep of hummus every week, I love having ready-made hummus in the fridge. Sometimes I add it to my salads or have it on toast. I find hummus incredibly easy to pair with other dishes. It tastes delicious, and it´s so healthy!
You will need:
2 x cans of chickpeas (I use the big ones)
1 x boiled beetroot chopped into pieces
4 tablespoons tahini
3 x lemons (squeezed)
a dash of olive oil
a dash of salt
a dash of chickpea juice
a dash of pepper
a pinch of cumin
2-3 cloves of garlic
- Get two bowls and start separating the chickpeas from the water.
- Then add all the ingredients together with the chickpeas, but be gentle with the chickpea juice. You don´t want to drink your hummus.
- Use a hand mixer/food processor/blender to make your hummus, try to get a “pure” soft consistency.
- Taste your hummus and add lemon, salt or pepper if needed.
Sometimes I even use this hummus as a starter for our 3-course meals for the B&B guests. Just slice some leftover bread and toast it in a pan with olive oil and sea salt. Add a layer of hummus on the toast and top it off with some olive oil and herbs from the garden. Voila.
