This is similar to what you find on the streets of Israel. It is easy and quick to make. You can vary the ingredients to taste easily.
- 2 (15 ounce) cans chickpeas
- 1⁄3 cup tahini (100% sesame paste not canned tahini sauce)
- 2 tablespoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon hot sauce (Tabasco)
- 3 -4 tablespoons olive oil
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1⁄3 cup lemon juice
- 1⁄3 cup water
- 1⁄4 cup dried spinach (optional)
- paprika (optional)
- Drain chickpeas.
- Place chickpeas, tahini, cumin, salt, lemon juice, garlic, hot sauce, and olive oil into food processor.
- Process, adding water and lemon juice as needed, the amount may vary. Keep them even in ratio. Personally I like the lemon flavor so do that stronger. The consistency should be a smooth dip or thin mash potatoes.
- When throughly mixed and at desired consistency add spinach flakes and pulse till blended.
- You can serve on a plate with a dip in the center and spiced olive oil poured over it or plain olive oil and sprinkled with paprika. Serve in a pita with olives, feta cheese, falafel, and cucumbers or just on crackers or Matzah.
Yummy, the hummus was delicious!
I used this as side dish and I'm sure I will do it again and again!
I used Cretan (Greek) organic and super tasty olive oil for this recipe.
Thanks a lo for this easy and tasty recipe.
I make hummus quite often and have been adding cumin for flavour but hadn't tried it with tobasco. We LOVED it! I skinned the chickpeas (a bit tedious, but I find it's more creamier without the skin) before putting it into the food processor. I had to add in a bit more of liquids to make it to our liking. For serving, I sprinkled cumin and paprika and drizzled a bit of olive oil in the centre. Thank you, Maeven6, for sharing this wonderful recipe, I definitely will be making it again! Made for PAC Spring '08.
I really liked it. The tabasco and cumin gave it a great flavor. Calls for less tahini (less calories)then other recipes I've tried with no ill affect on taste. Highly recommend.
