Recipe: hummus

One of my favorite things to eat it hummus. I had forgotten about it for a little while, but the other week I decided to make it again. I just love the recipe I have and I thought I’d share. Hummus is best enjoyed as a dip with carrots, celery or anything else that you enjoy dipping it into. It is also super easy to make here’s what you need:

Hummus with carrots & celery

Ingredients:

– 1 mediumsized can of chickpeas (kikkererwten)

– 3-5 tablespoons of lemon juice

– 1.5 tablespoons of tahini (sesame paste)

– 2 tablespoons & 1/4 cup of yoghurt

– 2 cloves of garlic

– 1/2 teaspoon of salt

– Additional: cajun spices

For a vegan version you can replace the yoghurt by 1/4 cup of liquid from the can & 2 tablespoons of olive oil.

If your hummus is too dry, just add more yoghurt or olive oil.

Preparation:

1.) Drain chickpeas

2.) Add all ingredients to a blender or food processor

3.) Blend it until mixed and smooth.

I personally prefer hummus made with yoghurt as it gives it a creamier flavor and texture than with the liquid and the oil. However, the original recipe is only with oil so you can just decided on what you want to do.

I eat this as a snack or as lunch depending on how much hummus & veggies I bring. Other suggestions to eat this with apart from carrots & celery:

– Other raw veggies such as tomatoes, cucumber, bell pepper etc.

– Nacho chips

– Chicken

– Spread it on bread/ with breadsticks

Have you ever eaten hummus before? If not, would you like to try it? If you did, how did you like it?
