Chickpea Hummus With Tortilla Chips




About: I live on a ranch in central B.C. with animals. I play the violin, viola, cello and piano and I love making exotic crafts.

Hello everybody!

This is a recipe for chickpea hummus, without the sesame paste. The kind that I have eaten from the store has always been much too oily for me, so mine doesn`t have any oil in it except sesame oil. But you can add lots of things to suite your taste like, chili oil, cumin, red peppers, and cilantro. I never really measure things when I cook unless its a new recipe, so I`ve written down the ingredients the best I could. Hope you like this!

Step 1: Ingredients

One can of Chickpeas (reserve the juice)

1 tsp sesame oil, or more

1/4 tsp salt to start off with

1/2 tsp pepper, or more

1 tbsp minced garlic, or as much as you like (I like lots)

1 tsp lemon juice

Chili oil (optional)

Tortilla chips

Step 2: Puree the Chickpeas

Add the can of chickpeas to a blender, and save the juice. Puree and add the chickpea juice until it`s smooth with no lumps and to your consistency.

Step 3: Spices

Now add the pepper, salt, lemon juice, sesame oil, garlic and puree until creamy.

Transfer to a bowl and taste and add salt to your liking.

Step 4: Finished!

Put your hummus on a plate of chips and garnish with chives, or oil. I`ve recently found out that lime flavored chips go awesome with hummus, it brings out the lemon flavor. Hope you enjoyed this!

    This is the way I've been doing it for years, canned chickpeas are so much easier, the chilli oil sounds an interesting addition!
