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 😀
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
Salt to taste
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 🙂
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 😀
