Hummus

SONY DSCSmooth Tasty Hummus.  A favourite dip to serve at parties.

If you have ever been to North Africa, Greece or Turkey to name a few countries, you will know the pleasure of true Hummus.  Over here in the UK, super markets Hummus is completely tasteless, sometimes I am not actually sure what I am tasting as it is so bland.  I have tried and tested this recipe over and over to recreate the tastes on my travels and I believe once you make it, you will never buy store bought again.

I served this Hummus when I had friends over with my Knäckebröd as seen in the picture but it is also lovely for a healthy snack served with slices of carrots, cucumber or peppers.


Serves 6 as a dip

Cooking time 6 minutes (Preparation time 5 minutes)

Ingredients

  • 3 tbsp Tahini
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • 1 tsp cumin
