Recipe: Humus


Yesterday, I tried to made Hummus, a famous Arab side dish. You can either eat it with pita bread or eat it on its own. If you want to try it, here's the recipe to share:

The ingredients needed are:

1- 500gm of chickpeas. Soak it for about 12 hours. The best time is actually 24 hours. You may also use canned chickpeas.

2. 2-3 cloves of garlic. Slice them.

3. About 1/4 cups of lemon juice.

4. 1/4 cups of tahina or sesame paste. You can get it at shops that sell Arab food condiments and ingredients.

5. Dash of salt.

The methods:

1-Cook the chickpeas until tender for about 1 hour.

2- Combine it with with other ingredients in a blender and blend until smooth.

The end product...Humus. You may add olives with olive oil. Or sprinkle it with some paprika. In this recipe, I use chili flakes instead.

Enjoy it with a bismillah =)
