Hummus - a gift to veggies

RECIPE - HUMMUS...


ONE CANNOT LIVE ON HUMMUS ALONE! I know people who do!...almost.


Homemade hummus with a little sumac, parsley and olive oil garnish.



When I decided to go 100% to the veggie side, I missed certain foods, and yes, cheese was one of them. But thanks to hummus I survived the transition ...





Hummus, made from chickpeas, is such a satisfying food. Pure natural wholefood protein that sustains you when hungry. I would put it on the side of my plate and eat it with potatoes, brown rice, broccoli ... I eat it by itself!


But perhaps most popular in the western culture is as a dip for veggies. Carrot sticks, cucumber slices, broccoli, cauliflower florets, pepper strips ...and a bowl of hummus, nothing better for a hungry soul.


HUMMUS


Ingredients


1 tin 400g of chickpeas, drained

1 tbsp tahini ( sesame paste )

1 garlic clove or two ;) , minced

1 tbsp lemon juice


2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil ( optional )

1/4 cup of water

1/2 tsp ground cumin

Mash the chickpeas with a fork until nice and smooth.

Taste to see if it need a little more salt or lemon juice


I sometimes put everything in a food processor and blitz it to a smooth paste.
