I love hummus!! It's amazing that a can of chickpeas can be turned into something so luxurious.
"Hummus" comes from the Arabic word meaning chickpeas. Served hot from the oven, this traditional Middle Eastern dip becomes even more delicious. (Don't be eating any of that fridge cold hummus....just don't...... )
For this recipe, I made my standard hummus, then garnished it with olive oil, garlicky mushrooms & parsley. It's sooo good served hot with toasty baguette. I like to round it out with a little dish of olives and fresh veggies for dipping. If I'm making a bigger spread of food I'll plate up some grilled and sliced veggie sausages, and my recipe for Baklazhan. (A delicious tomato, pepper & eggplant dip)
Sometimes I make my own tahini to use in the recipe.
The flavour is awesome, but I use store bought stuff too. It is simple. Toasted sesame seeds blended with a neutral veg oil. It turns into a smooth creamy butter. So good. You can make the tahini in your food processor, put it in a jar, then continue on making hummus without washing the food processor in between. Couldn't be more simple.
