Mmmmm I love hummus! I also prefer to make my own because I know exactly what’s going in it, nothing but wholesome fresh ingredients! Here’s a recent batch I made with some added red pepper, give it a try and let me know what you think.
- 500 grams pre-soaked chick peas
- 1/2 red pepper
- splash of olive oil
- 1 garlic clove
- 1/2 lemon juice
- 1 tbls tahini
- pinch of salt and pepper
Literally just put all the ingredients together in your blender/Nutribullet and blitz until it is the consistency you like. This time round I used a tin of pre-soaked chick peas, but in the past I’ve often bought dry garbanzo beans and soaked them overnight. Both work great and if you can by a jar/tin ready to go it just saves a bit of pre planning!
When done, transfer to your serving dish or mason jar and pour a little olive oil over the top to seal in your flavours. I froze half of the hummus in a container thinking it would last a while; two days later and it’s already gone! Also made some awesome flat bread to eat it with and the recipe for that will follow shortly I promise.
