Making hummus

chickpeas
Hummus is a paste made of chick peas and tahini (ground sesame seeds), it is a protein rich spread for your bread, fits a vegan diet and easy to make at home. At least, that is what I thought… it turns out it is difficult to get the consistency right the first time. Mashing the hummus by hand left some chunks of chick peas in the paste, which do not match with any hummus I had ever taste before. 😛

Next time I will use more oil and drain less of the cooking liquid used in boiling the chick peas. With 800 grams of chick peas I had made 4 little boxes of ‘hummus’ , which is way more than I can eat. In the future I will try to make less and smoother hummus!
