Shalom! I Bring You Garlic Hummus…

Whenever I make hummus, I remember that hilarious scene in You Don’t Mess With The Zohan when Zohan’s dad takes a spoonful of hummus and stirs it into his cup of tea/coffee at the dinner table! Although that particular scene is an obvious exaggeration of Middle-Easteners’ relationship with hummus (unless there’s a flavour combination I’ve been missing?) nevertheless, in Israel, hummus is EVERYWHERE. In fact, that’s where I first fell in love with its creamy deliciousness. Today, I share with you my most simple and nutritious hummus recipe. It takes less than TWO minutes to make and is absolutely divine; a most typical I-accidently-ate-the-whole-thing dish.

WARNING: Consume at least 3-4 hours before human interaction as is very garlicky!

1 can of all-natural chickpeas (drained)
4 tbsp olive oil 
2 tbsp organic tahini 
2 tsp crushed garlic (2 cloves)
juice of one lemon
salt and pepper

a small handful of fresh parsley (optional)
sweet paprika (optional)

Mix all ingredients in a food processor.

To finish, top with a drizzle of olive oil.

If you’re feeling fancy, add some parsley and paprika too.

Enjoy with raw vegetables and/or healthy crackers or whatever it is your heart/stomach desires!

  2. Awww. Hope your Valentine’s Day was happy and sweet. Eshgh and Ahava (hope I got that right) — Love! Have you tried: roasted red pepper Hummus? Good, but hot! Artichoke? Good for a change. Braised Brussels Sprouts Hummus? Me, neither — I just made that up, but it sounds good. Pistachio or Cashew (or both?) Me neither, made that up, too, but it’s a thought! Pistachio/Rose Water and spearmint Hummus? Doesn’t exist, but you’ve got a blender… I’d be curious to know how they come out!
