Hummus and Pita

It was one of those days where you just do.not.want.to.cook.

So I said,”What is one thing that everyone loves and doesn’t require any slaving away at the stove?”

Hummus and (Ready made) Pita πŸ˜€

So here is a recipe I tried…and it turned out to be a HIT in the family!

You will need:

1 400g Can of Americana Chickpeas (or any brand easily available at your local store…or if you are up for it you could boil your own chickpeas)

Around 3-4 tblsp of Lemon juice

2 cloves of garlic

4 tblsp Sesame seeds

Olive oil

Salt to taste

How to:

So basically… drain the chickpeas in a bowl so you can save the water in the can.

Throw the chickpeas in a blender with garlic, lemon juice, sesame seeds and few tblsp of the water you saved from the can.

Start up the blender and slowly add 1 tblsp of olive oil at a time until the paste is smooth according to your liking.

You may add more water from the can if you feel it’s not blending right.. i actually ended up using like all of it.

add the salt and blend some more..

Dish out in a pretty bowl and garnish with chopped parsely/coriander and olive oil and 3-4 chickpeas πŸ™‚

Ta-daa… That is all you have to do. I served it with ready made pita bread from the store that I heated up in the toaster oven.

Happy Easy Cooking πŸ˜€
