Hummus is probably one of the tastiest and one of the easiest dishes made of legumes. It’s a classic Middle Eastern dip made of chickpeas and usually served with pitta or flat bread. The hummus recipe below will give you perfect traditional Middle Eastern hummus and will prove that the most delicious things are quite often the easiest to make. Basically, it does not require any cooking, just a food processor, and seven main ingredients. It’s a good base to start experimenting with flavors and customizing it to your own taste. This recipe uses tahini paste which adds deep flavor and zest to the dish, though some people prefer to avoid it.
How to make Hummus
The first question is whether to use tinned chickpeas or not. Traditionally hummus is made of chickpeas, that were previously soaked at least for a night and then cooked. Nowadays it is easier to buy a can of ready ones. Both ways are acceptable, but if you’ve decided to save your time make sure you chose the proper product. Sometimes it will cost you more but remember that it affects the final result greatly, so be careful.
If you’ve decided to make everything by yourself, you need to make sure that after soaking and cooking chickpeas are soft enough, otherwise, you won’t get the smooth buttery texture of your hummus. To ensure this use an old trick and add a little bicarbonate of soda to the soaking water.
Another way to make hummus softer is to remove the skins of each chickpea after it is cooked. It goes off very easily but considering the size it sounds like madness. In fact, it won’t take more than ten minutes.
Hummus without tahini
Tahini free hummus is ideal for people with a sesame allergy. It is very easy to make it and takes only a few minutes.
