Hummus a dip or spread made from chick peas. It is used most frequently alongside pita chips, vegetables, and bread, though it can be used in a variety of appetizers. In fact, hummus is the Arabic word for 'chick pea'. You may notice that many hummus recipes use garbanzo beans, not chickpeas. However, garbanzo is just the Spanish translation of 'chickpea'.
Hummus can vary greatly in flavour. Some types have a strong lemon flavor, some an overwhelming garlic flavor, and some hummus has a spicy tone.
1 can chickpeas
½ cup vegetable oil (typically olive oil is used)
2 Tbsp tahini
3 Tbsp lemon juice
3 cloves garlic
1 tsp fresh parsley
¼ tsp salt
1 Tbsp water
- Blend all the ingredients except for the peas in a food processor.
- Add the beans and process until it resembles a chunky dip, i.e. not completely smooth.
- You can add more lemon juice, garlic and salt to suit your own taste.
