Ingredients to make Hummus

  • 200 grams chickpeas soaked overnight
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 2 tblsp tahini paste
  • salt to taste
  • Sumac to sprinkle
  • 50 ml olive oil
  • 1/2 cup water reserved from the boiled chickpeas
  • Juice of one lemon

How to make Hummus

  1. 1. Pressure cook the chickpeas for about 20 minutes or atleast 6 whistles. If you're using canned chickpeas, you will be skipping this step
  2. 2. Once cool, drain the chickpea and reserve 1/2 cup of the water. Submerge the chickpeas in a bowl of cold water and squish the skin out.
  3. 3. In a food processor/ blender add the chickpeas, water, tahini, salt, lemon juice and garlic. Pulse
  4. 4. Add olive oil, process until smooth. If you need more water or lemon, add now. Check for seasoning.
  5. 5. Plonk it out on to a bowl, mix in sumac and a little bit more olive oil. Let it sit for one hour before serving for the flavours to develop.

My Tip:

Peeled chickpeas give a smoother hummus
