Hummusliciously | Hummus in 2 versions

Updated: May 19, 2020

Hummus, this stranger.

Unfortunately, I happen to come accross people who's never even heard about Hummus, yet they point the finger at it as it was some kind of "compost", cause the two word in italian are quite similar. I mean, what's your problem? Just get informed and read a little online to find out that it's nothing more than a typical Lebanese dish, a puree made from chickpea, which allows the creation of many other variants, tasty and nutritious. It's a valid and healthy alternative to an afternoon snack, spread on bread or crackers, but also to season the salad and to accompany other main dishes as a side.


So, versatility of hummus is really enormous, and above all there is nothing easier in preparing it. All you need is a blender, and you're done.


For a more intense flavor, use dried chickpeas soaked for 12 hourse and then cooked. But wether you forgot to soak them, or don't have time, pre-cooked chickpeas in a jar will do well anyway.


We absolutely love hummus spread on my homemade bread. It's exactly what we need when start feeling that snack craving some hourse after the lunch, and it satisfies us until dinner.






INGREDIENTS

Classic hummus

  • 1 jar of chickpeas

  • 5 tbsp / 75ml warm water

  • 1 tsp tahin

  • 3 tbsp extra vergin olive oil

  • The juice of a half lemon squeezed

  • 1 pinch of salt


Peas hummus

  • 1 jar of peas

  • 3 tbsp warm water

  • 1 handful or parseley

  • 1 tsp tahin

  • 3 tbsp extra vergin olive oil

  • The juice of a half lemon squeezed

  • 1 pinch of salt



Whether you want to make the classic one with chickpeas, or the peas version, put the legumes, lemon juice, salt, tahin, oil and water in the jug of the blender and start blending. The chickpeas hummus requires more water, while for the peas, being a legume richer in water, will not be necessary.

Turmeric, sesame seeds and olive oil for decoration.
