Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 cans (3 cups) chickpeas
  • 1/2 cup tahini (sesame paste)
  • Juice of 2 lemons
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • Salt, to taste
  • Olive oil, to taste
  • Warm water, as needed

Instructions

  1. Drain and rinse chickpeas. I used one can Progresso and one can Pastene, because I am an integrationist and equal chickpea employer.
  2. Mix up the Tahini, which separates and is a little slimy, but earthy and good – trust me.
  3. Add everything but water and oil to the processor and slowly blend in the liquids as you whirl.
  4. Taste. Fix. Enjoy.

Notes

  • We’ve all had hummus in the past, presumably, and you don’t need me to tell you that you can add about anything to this mixture including herbs, hot sauce, roasted garlic or peppers. You got this. Now go. Peace.
