Homemade Spicy Hummus

FacebookPinterestStumbleUponGoogle+TumblrRedditShare

When my sister and I went to Jordan there was no shortage of hummus. Back then I had no clue what hummus was so I kept my distance. Now that I am trying to eat healthier and adopt a vegan lifestyle, Hummus has re-entered my life.

I think you either like hummus or you don’t, there is no in-between. (sigh) I don’t like hummus. I guess it is the texture of goop…I just don’t like it. But this Hummus Recipe is good. I only know this because I served it to others and everyone loved it. But not me. I don’t like Hummus.

Delicious Rating: So this rating is strictly based on my taste buds. It is a super easy recipe to make  and you can really cater it to what you prefer. It is not too spicy but still very flavorful. Like I said, all my guests really enjoyed this Hummus recipe, some asking for the recipe itself. I just didn’t care for it. I just don’t care for Hummus as a whole. What about you? Are you a Hummus fan?

    There are lots of different textures for hummus. One of the recommended methods for a creamier hummus is taking the tehina (tahini), garlic and lemon juice and imulsifying it on its own first (blend it into a thick paste). You might want to use at least two or three times the amount of tehnia and lemon in this recipe. If it gets too thick, you can add a bit of water.

    The chickpeas and other spices are added last. Some people only add some of the chickpeas to the blender and mix the remaining chickpeas in whole.

    Cheers
