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.
- 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)
Directions See How It's Made
- 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.
