There’s not much to say about humus really, a staple of many many parts of the world as wide a mix as there are recipes for the stuff. So why am I posting a recipe then? Well firstly, I really like this one, the harissa adds the right amount of spice and with a good extra virgin olive oil it produces something simple yet extremely more-ish . Secondly and much like yesterday’s post humus if one of those things most people buy in a little pot from the supermarket and again, is much better when it’s made fresh.
I go so far as to say that Humus is even easier to make than pesto also, like the pesto this recipe relies on a food processor. I use canned chickpeas but you can make this even cheaper by buying dried, soaking overnight and then cooking, really don’t have the time for that honestly
1 Can of Chickpeas
1 clove of garlic pressed
2 tablespoons of harissa paste
3 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
A Squeeze of Lemon juice
Pinch of sea salt
Sprinkle of Paprika
Put all of the ingredients except the paprika into a food processor and pulse until blended. Next taste, add more seasoning or lemon if it’s not right add more oil if it’s too thick for your preference. Erm that’s it really, dust with paprika and then serve it how you like it, in this case some veg and flatbreads.
Couldn't be simpler eh? No reason not to really !
