Hummus originates from Middle Eastern cuisine and I can’t thank them enough for this amazing creation. I can’t begin to even describe how much I love hummus and feel bad that I never knew about it 10 years back. (Opportunity missed, I say)

Classic Hummus

The nuttiness of the chickpeas, pungent taste of garlic, tangyness of lemon and bitter taste of tahini makes it the creamiest and yummiest combination. If you like to make some variations in this, you can add bell pepper, beetroot, sumac, turmeric or anything else that you wish.

I make it using one can of chickpeas and use it across 2 weeks for almost every sandwich that I make owing to which I never end up using or even buying mayonnaise ever at home.

Are you a hummus fan as well?

  1. Drain and rinse the canned chickpeas using a strainer. You can use dried chickpeas as well. Soak them overnight and then boil them next day morning till they are fork tender.
  2. In a food processor, add the chickpeas, garlic, tahini, lemon juice, salt and pepper and blend it till smooth. Add olive oil while blending it. And in 3 mins it should be done.
  3. If you think it is a little too stiff while blending add some of the chickpea liquid and it should do the trick. Scrape the corners well, so that everything gets blended well.
  4. Serve it with generous EVOO on top of the hummus and use it as a dip or spread. Its just brilliant.

[…] I think sesame is the only ingredient common across all cultures in Asia, can you think of any thing else? I asked this question once on Instagram and had a lot of answers like ginger, turmeric, cumin etc. Most of these are shared among different food cultures but not in the same extent as Sesame gets used. Tahina is mainly used for making hummus and I have a recipe of hummus here – https://spicetrip.nl/hummus-white-chickpea-dip-vegan/ […]
