Ok, so here’s the famous hummus recipe:
2 cans chickpeas
1 bulb roasted garlic* (or about 3 cloves raw, chopped finely)
juice of 1 lime
1 tsp salt
1 tbsp cumin
2 tbsp tahini
water and olive oil as needed
Blend all ingredient together in a food processor, adding oil and water to create a smooth texture.
This is the basic recipe: you can add other goodies to this to make a flavoured hummus extravaganza (ie, sunflower seeds, peppers, sun-dried tomatoes, the kitchen sink…)
*roasted garlic is soooo easy and heavenly: simply take a whole head, slice off the very top, drizzle with olive oil and roast in a 300 degree oven until golden (about 20 min). Once cool, squeeze the garlic out of the skin, discard skin and enjoy the mellow garlic-fruit.
