DIY Hummus

Very easy dish to whip together… although it’s not one that I happen to make regularly since Owen is not a huge fan of it. In the past, I would use my “magic bullet” rip off and whiz it up in batches… but found that method to be quite tedious. This time around, I decided to simply use a potato masher!

Ingredients:

  • 1 can of chickpeas
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 2 tbs tahini paste
  • 3-5 crushed garlic cloves
  • Juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup (~60ml) water
  • 100ml olive oil

Pop the chickpeas, cumin, tahini paste, garlic and lemon juice into a bowl and start mashing until combined. Add the water and mash again. Once that’s combined, drizzle in the olive oil and mix until smooth. Then you can serve it up with your dippers of choice… carrot or celery sticks, crackers, or Turkish bread.
