Hommous is excellent accompanied to either fresh or roasted vegetables, with any type of meat (but especially lamb) or as a dipping sauce for crackers.
- 1 cup dried organic chickpeas, soaked overnight in cold water
- 3 cloves organic garlic, finely grated
- 1/2 cup organic lemon juice
- 1/4 cup organic tahini
- 1/4 cup organic virgin, cold pressed olive oil
- 1/3 tsp organic sweet paprika powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- Few sprigs of fresh organic coriander (chopped) to garnish
Add the drained chickpeas and bay leaves to a pot of water.
Simmer the chickpeas over medium heat for about 30 minutes, or until the chickpeas are tender.
Drain the chickpeas, reserve the cooking liquid, but discard the bay leaves.
Combine the chickpeas and the garlic, lemon juice and tahini in a food processor.
Add some of the cooking liquid (of the chickpeas) and process the mixture until it is a smooth paste.
Season the hummous mixture to taste with the salt.
Serve the tahini with some sweet paprika sprinkled over the top and drizzled with a little of the olive oil.
The hommous will keep in the refridgerator, covered, for up to 5 days.Advertisement
