Hummus is so yummy, yet so easy and quick to make. And I find it really upgrades any simple bread snack, so I just made some for lunch. Not sure how close to the traditional recipe this actually is, but this is how I always make mine:
This is what you need:
- 1 can chickpeas
- 1 clove garlic
- juice of 1/2 lime
- 1 tsp salt
- 1 tsp chili powder (or 1/2 tsp cumin)
- 1 handful fresh parsley
- 1 dash olive oil
- optional: roasted red peppers, dried tomatoes, …
This is what you do:
Simply mix all the ingredients in a blender (I went for roasted red peppers this time, 4 tbsp or so). If you like the hummus less thick, add more olive oil or some of the liquid from the canned chickpeas.
Enjoy with fresh bread or tortilla chips!
