Talin’s Hummus — Chick Pea Dip

Hummus (Chick Pea) Dip is one of the easiest things to make… Here is how to make it…

 

Ingredients:

Salt

Lemon Juice (Use the machine or the lemon squeezer to squeeze the lemon juice out of real lemons)

Olive Oil

Garlic

Tahini

Chick Peas

Water

 

1 — Open up the Chick Peas can 1 or 2 or how much desired — put them into a strainer – Wash and rinse the liquid thoroughly, then drain the water completely..

2 — 2-3 cloves of garlic. Put in the food processor or to your choice (have little garlic, if you love a lot of garlic in your hummus.. it is all about a persons preference)

3 — Put 4-5 tablespoons of Tahini

4 — 2 or 3 tablespoons of Olive Oil

5 — Put a teaspoon of salt

6 — Put the lemon juice in

7 — Then add water in gradually

8 — Make sure the hummus chick pea dip is not so watery. Make sure it is not too too thick either.. just in the middle but more toward the thick side.. Also make sure the hummus is not too too salty, just right. take a spoon and have a taste before serving…

 to top it you can put ground pepper, paprika, olives, cumin, and decorate it with either grape tomatos, and so on and so forth. It is a great appetizer and you can even make it for lunch… have it with pita bread, or have it with Eggplant kebabs, Pork Kebabs, or with other Appetizers…

 It is a healthy appetizer and you will love it. If you have not tried it out, try it out.. you will love it!

  1. I’m about to sound really silly with this question, but:
    What is tahini exactly, and where can you find it? From the comments above, it sounds like ground sesame seeds. Is this something you’d find in a normal supermarket or would it require a specialty store?
    Sorry for the silly questions; I’m a big fan of hummus and I’d love to try this out!

  2. Definitely something for me and for the first time I have all ingredients home to try this tonight! Thanks for the idea, sounds delicious!

  3. I find the best, simple recipes through blogs. I am going to try this. I had the same question about Tahini – where to find it.

  4. the Palestinian and Jordanian women I know swear that you need to soak your chickpeas overnight for the best consistency! I’ve never tried it, but they promise it’s the best! Thanks for coming by my blog– I’m enjoying reading your posts!

  5. I love making my own hummus. It’s really easy and fun to experiment with different types of beans, too. Substitue black beans for the garbanzo and throw in a little cilantro…so tasty. Thanks for visiting Spatoola.

  6. I love Hummus! It is good for any time of the day, it works well with veggies and meat, or even fish, not to mention it can be great alone.
    My favorite Hummus is the one made with soaked, boiled chickpeas and made by pounding the ingredients instead of processing them! Awesome!

  7. I love hummus and have been making it for years! A great vegetarian lunch or just snacks. I eat it with crackers, chips, pita, veggies! Thanks for reminding me how good and easy it is… I’m thinking lunch!
