Fantastic hummus – we’re famous for it + you can be too!

20 Oct

Making hummus is great to do with kids. It is fast and easy to make and so deliciously rewarding. Chickpeas, tahini, garlic, lemon and olive oil in a food processor and you’re ready to rock. Getting the proportions right and the consistency perfect, might take a little finessing. Our chef Nick has got it down, and I’m happy to share the inside scoop with you.

This is how it’s done:

2 15oz cans chickpeas(garbanzo beans)

1/2 cup of tahini  (sesame seed paste)

1/2 cup olive oil

2 cloves of crushed garlic

1/4 cup lemon juice

1/2 cup water

2 teaspoons cumin

2 Tablespoons salt

water to thin

Blend all ingredients until smooth, and voila! Serve with hot pita, dip your carrots, add to your rice and enjoy!
