What I love about making your own humus is that it’s so effortless! All you do is place your ingredients in a food processor and whizz it away. I know you’re suppose to make humus with tahini but I even though I like me some sesame I don’t really like tahini. So… I’m faking it! Instead of tahini I just use a few dashes of sesame oil and that does the job perfectly.
1 can of chickpeas (400 g), rinsed and drained
1 clove of garlic, chopped
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp ground coriander seeds
1/2 tsp paprika
3 dashes of sesame oil
4 tbsp olive oil
juice of half a lime/lemon
pinch of salt
*For some variety add in a bunch of fresh coriander, parsley or mint leaves. Or serve up with some thick Turkish or Greek yogurt.
Place garlic and chickpeas in your food-processor and whizz it away.
Add all your remaining ingredients and blend until you have a nice creamy puree.
That really is all there is to it.
