Serving: 4-6 people
Dietary Restrictions: Vegan, vegetarian
Origin: Middle East ( Lebanon, Syria, Palestine, Jordan )
500g chickpeas soaked overnight, cooked over medium heat for 45-60 minutes and drained.
250g of Tahini sauce
10-15 crushed garlic cloves
150ml extra-virgin olive oil
10 cl Water
2 and a 1/2 lemon
2 branches of fresh thyme
1 green chili
Salt to taste
There are three main steps:
STEP1- Make Tahini Sauce
Combine tahini with salt, 1 lemon juice, 5-6 crushed garlic cloves. Taste to adjust the way you like it. Add water slowly and mix until you get a fluffy texture. You can save this tahini sauce in the fridge and reuse it for your salad dressings and marinades later
STEP2- Make Confit Garlic Olive Oil
Over medium heat, put olive oil with 5 whole garlic gloves cut in half, thyme, and one green chili. Let it simmer for 20-25 minutes. Let it cool and put in a mason jar to reuse also in other dishes.
STEP3: Mix the hummus and plate it
In a food processor, mix chickpeas,1.5 lemon juice, garlic from step2, 3-4 tables spoons of Tahini sauce from Step1. Add a bit of salt and mix well until combined. You may want to add some cold water if you like the texture to be a bit airy and fluffy...
For garnish - I like to add some chopped parsley, chickpeas, and the olive oil that I used to confit the garlic ... optional >> you can add a small spoon of tahini sauce on top of the hummus
It’s very very easy and you will have a flavour bomb in your fridge that will last you a week !
