Hummus is a simple but tasty dip made from chickpeas and tahini, a sesame paste from the Far East. In this post, I’ll show you how you can prepare hummus yourself quickly and easily. This delicious dip is pureed in no time with just a few ingredients – whether with a food processor or with the hand blender.
Even if this brownish dip is not the prettiest, it has been one of the most popular dips on the finger food buffet for some time. Hummus also refines delicious bowls or other oriental dishes with its fine, creamy taste. What should definitely not be missing in hummus is tahini – a sesame paste. You can either prepare these yourself by mixing sesame seeds with oil and pureing them finely. Alternatively, Tahini is also available in every organic market. You should also pay attention to the quality of the chickpeas used when preparing hummus. Either these are bought ready-cooked in the organic market (but then be careful not to contain any additives) or they are soaked in water in their natural and dry form for 12 hours and then boiled for about 2 hours.
