    Homemade Hummus

    I looove hummus & this recipe is very easy to make.

    Makes a small Batch of Hummus, about 2 cups.


    Ingredients:

    1 cup dry chickpeas, soaked overnight

    1 bay leaf

    1 teaspoon kosher salt, more as needed

    1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil, more as needed

    3 tablespoons tahini (Tahini is a ground sesame seed paste, similar to peanut butter.. u can find it in the ethnic isle at the grocery store or at a health food store)

    1 tablespoon lemon juice

    1 garlic clove, finely chopped

    1/8 teaspoon ground cumin, more as needed

    Coarse sea salt, as needed

    Cayenne, optional


    Drain the chickpeas. Combine chickpeas, 6 cups water, bay leaf, and a very large pinch of salt.
    Simmer chickpeas, skimming off any foam from the surface, until they are very tender, about 1 hour.
    Drain, reserving cooking liquid. If you feel like peeling the chickpeas u can do this while they are still warm (is easier that way)
    or don't peel them... either way is good.


    In a food processor, combine chickpeas (try to do this while they are still warm, they will be grind into a smoother hummus if you do, or reheat before pureeing), 1/2 cup cooking liquid (also warm is good here)1/3 cup oil, tahini, lemon juice, salt, garlic, and cumin until smooth.
    (Add more cooking liquid if you like a thinner hummus)

    Spread hummus on a plate. Drizzle liberally with oil and season with coarse salt, cumin, and cayenne (to liking).

    I always though Hummus was a fruity, yuppy thing to eat. Boy was I wrong, I tried it and it was delicious. Now we eat it all the time. Always funny when we have the beer out watching UFC and I bring in a bowl of Hummus LOL.

    Hummus is awesome! I remember working for a mediterranean rest in NY in 2007 and we made our hummus.

    Try another batch with cilantro, jalapenos and fresh lime. California Hummus!
