Traditional hummus

Traditional hummus

I already have a tahini free hummus recipe on the blog, but this one is way more traditional. You get a deliciously creamy and slightly tangy hummus that is perfect to slather on those flatbreads to make wraps! Oh and here is the link of the how-to make tahini at home if needed.

Traditional hummus :

  • 400g cooked chickpeas
  • 1 garlic clove
  • Juice of half a lemon
  • 3 tbsp tahini
  • Olive oil
  • Salt

This step is optional but I’d really recommend you do it for a creamier hummus : peel the chickpeas by pinching it between your fingers.

In a powerful blender or food processor, add the peeled chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, salt and peeled garlic clove. Blend until creamy, scrape down the edges a few times if needed.

Pour in a bowl and drizzle with good quality olive oil before serving.
