Hummus (makes about 2 cups)
Hummus is a much loved dip and is a favourite component of our Tukka Boxes. Perfect for a snack anytime!
1 can (400 grams) cooked chickpeas
2 small garlic cloves, peeled
1 teaspoon sea salt
2 big tablespoons tahini
1 tablespoon ground cumin
Juice from 2 lemons
1 tablespoon honey
Water to mix
Paprika and extra virgin olive oil to serve
food processor or blender, measuring spoons, sieve, spoon, serving bowls
Blend all the ingredients in a food processor until you get the consistency you like. Add a little water for a smoother mix. Make sure you taste it and add more lemon juice, salt or honey so you get the perfect sour/sweet/salty combo. Leave for a couple of hours in the fridge to let the flavours develop.
To get more juice out of the lemon, press and roll under the palm of your hand on a board or bench-top.
