6 INGREDIENTS: SUPER EASY
CHICKPEAS one can (240g)
TAHINI 1 tablespoon
GARLIC 2 cloves, chopped
LEMON 1, juice and zest (zest optional)
OLIVE OIL 2 tablespoons
WATER 1 tablespoon (more if you need/wish)
Throw all the ingredients together in a food processor and blend. That’s it. Easy. As promised. Salt if you wish but I never bother. Most people tend to adapt basic recipes to suit their tastes. Play around. You can’t go wrong.
Option: to make hummus using fresh chickpeas. Soak chickpeas in water overnight, pressure cook for 45 mins till super soft, use those instead of tinned variety.
Chickpeas: Plant-based protein, iron 26%, zinc 17%
Tahini: sesame seeds super high in iron 50%, calcium 42%, magnesium 23%, protein and vitamin E
Will last one week tops in the fridge. But it won’t last at all as it will be eaten.
