Hummous recipes anyone?

I LOVE this stuff, especially Sainsbury's one with red pepper. Anyone got a good recipe?

i either buy the pre char grilled ones (from the deli) if i havnt got a lot of time, or i roast the whole peppers on the BBQ, until they are black, put them in cold water & then the skin comes off really easy!

this recipe is pretty easy to make, its the skinning of the peppers that takes the time []

Re: Hummous recipes anyone?

Hi Fred, I suspect you dont get it ready made in Turkey because its so easy to make yourself.

You can use dried chick peas but these have to be soaked over night so its easier and quicker to use tinned chick peas.

1 tin chick peas
1 or 2 cloves garlic
juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons tahini (try Sainsburys)

whizz in food processor and voila. If youre on a diet you can leave out the oil and add water, its just as good but a bit drier.

gezmek has a little shameless behaviour in the past
Olive oil in humus

For me the addition of a "generous" amount of good "raw, homemade" olive oil definitely is the magic ingredient.

"Homemade" olive oil

My sister has a place in greece and regularly brings back some "village" pressed olive oil for me. It's so good one can easily sip the stuff neat. Really!
