I'm really shocked. Seriously. How could you buy hoummus!?

First of all, stop buying it. Even the Kosher kind is wacky compared to the stuff you can really easily make by yourself.

All you need is a blender:)
And love:)

Let's do it!

Type of dish: side, paste, dip
Cost: cheap
Difficulty: easy
Serves: 4
Time: 5 min!!!!
Preparation time: 5 min

You'll need:
a knife, a can opener, a hand blender or blender, a medium sized bowl, spoon, teaspoon

  • 1 can chickpeas, drained
  • 1 garlic clove ( add more and other's will know  you've had hoummus)
  • 1 tsp dijon mustard
  • juice from one lemon
  • olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • optional: cayenne pepper

In your blender, or bowl (if you only have a hand blender), put in the chickpeas, mustard, garlic clove, 1/3 of the lemon juice, a pinch of S&P and about 1/2 cup olive oil. Start blending. Check after 2 minutes to taste, add more salt, pepper, lemon juice or olive oil.  When you have a thick, even paste, you're done. Serve with warm pita bread or vegetable sticks.


Additional information: To make red hoummus, add to the blender 1 or 2 dried tomatoes. And don't salt until you've tried it.
You can also add tahini paste, which is made from sesame seeds, but why bother. You can drizzle more olive oil over the finished hoummus, for example, truffle oil, or spicy oils. Man, it's good. Experiment a bit to find what taste you like most. You can also add some pumpkin seeds to the finished paste.

ps. You can use a tsp of tahini if you have it, but it's not really that nescessary. I live without it.
