hummous

Category: awesomenesspimento @ 3:53 pm

Several people have enquired about my hummous recipe lately, so I figured it’d make a good first post of the year. You’ll need a nice food processor for this.. I tried with a stab mixer once, it was an utter failure. Also I once killed a mate’s food processor making this.. it’s powerful stuff!

Basically, put all these in the food processor and thoroughly mulch.

3 cans of chic peas
2/3 of a jar of tahini
At least 1 bulb of garlic
Juice of 4 lemons
Splash of extra virgin olive oil
About a tablespoon of paprika
About half a tablespoon of cumin
Crack of salt & pepper

Adjust things to taste. The lemon juice makes it fluffy so it’s important to get it right. The taste of it should just come through. Garlic is also to taste, I like to go for at least 1.5 bulbs, sometimes 2, depending on intensity. If it tastes a little bland but has enough lemon juice, try adding more paprika. For best results, leave in the fridge for a few hours prior to consuming. It lets the flavours soak in together. Serve on crackers or warm, fresh bread. Or rub under armpits, that’s also good.

Happy new deer!
