Hummus is a Middle Eastern or Arabic delicious spread made from chickpeas, lemon juice and Tahini. Sometimes we will make a whole batch and keep it the fridge for everyone to snack on throughout the week. We eat it on a whole range of things including chips, sandwiches, rice, or on a snack platter served with olives and cheese.
3 cups cooked chickpeas
1 cup water
½ cup East Wind Tahini
¼ cup lemon juice
⅛ cup tamari or soy sauce
6 cloves of garlic, minced
2-3 teaspoons of paprika (optional)
We also recommend experimenting with spices you enjoy to flavor the hummus. Some combinations we like here are cayenne, parsley and paprika, or thyme, sage, parsley and oregano.
Mash chickpeas in a food processor or heavy-duty blender. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring until well combined. Enjoy!
