How do you make Hummus?
How I made Hummus for the first time in my life!
I'm 28 years old and have never cooked a proper meal! At the most I can make eggs on toast and a pasta bake, that's as far as I go, disappointing, I know! However, I can now add Hummus to my 'long' list of dishes. I was asked to make it for the Xmas party at my workplace and I have a little trouble saying no, so I couldn't refuse. At first I was worried it will come out all wrong and no one will eat it, but I was following instructions from the recipe book and thought "how hard can it be?". Either way, if it didn't work out, Sainsbury's is next door ;)
Anyway.... Hours later, I finally finished and it was a success, woo hoo! So if I can make it, anyone can =)
For your average person, preparation should only take up to 10mins.
Start off with draining 3 cans of chick peas, place into a food processor and whizz with a little cooking water until smooth. Add desired amount of ground cumin, chilli powder, juice from 2 lemons, olive oil and a pinch of salt and blend again (you may need to add a little water at this point, depends on thickness) If you like garlic, then you can add one crushed clove. Serve drizzled with olive oil plus warm pitta bread for scooping your delicious hummus with.
