Quick Hummus Recipe

Do you know that it takes only 5 minutes to prepare a healthy hummus with a tin of chickpeas?

Of course, if you use dry chickpeas soaked overnight and boiled, the result will be nicer.. but for those moments where you need something last minute, this recipe will save you!

All the ingredients (excluded the lemon and fresh coriander) can be stored in your pantry so buying a few tins of chickpeas and a jar of tahini in advance can be very handy.

I always use my blender (here my model) but if you don’t have a blender, don’t worry, you can still make a good hummus pressing the chickpeas with a fork or potato masher.

Ingredients

 250 g cooked chickpeas* (or 1 tin of chickpeas - drained)
 2 tbsp tahini
 ½ lemon
 ½ tsp ground cumin
 4 tbsp water
 salt (start with 1/4 tsp and add more if needed)
 ½ garlic clove (optional)
To decorate
 1 generous drizzle of extra virgin olive oil
 1 handful of roughly chopped fresh coriander
 1 tsp smoked paprika
 1 sprinkle of sesame seeds

* The ideal would be to use dry chickpeas soaked overnight and cooked in boiling water. If you don't have fresh chickpeas you can use 1 tin of chickpeas (drained)

 

Instructions

1

Place all the ingredients in a food processor and blend until smooth (the more you blend, the smoother it gets). If the consistency is too dense add some water until you get the level of smoothness that you like.

2

Adjust with salt and serve with a sprinkle of paprika, freshly chopped coriander and a generous drizzle of extra-virgin olive oil.

Notes

For a smoother consistency, you can peel the chickpeas before blending them.

To do so, soak the chickpeas in boiling water for 5 to 10 minutes. Once the water cools down, start rubbing the chickpeas between your hands and peel off the skin.
