Easy Hummus Recipe

The UN has declared that November the 19th is the International Day of Solidarity with the Palestine People. So our recipe for this month is something you would find on a Palestinian menu… hummus!

  • 28 oz / 8oo g canned chickpeas
  • 3 garlic cloves
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • 4 tablespoons tahini
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • olive oil (for drizzling)
  • OPTIONAL: ½ cup (2 oz / 50 g) pine nuts, toasted

Preparation time: 5-10 minutes

Serves 6

Drain the chickpeas, reserving ¼ cup (2 fl oz / 50 ml) of the can juices, and rinse. Put the chickpeas into a food blender, add the garlic cloves and tahini, and blend for a few minutes. Add the juice from the chickpea can, followed by the lemon juice and the salt; blend until smooth. Scrape the hummus into a dish, drizzle generously with olive oil, sprinkle with the toasted pine nuts (optional) and serve!
