Our friend Romaine arrives today and I know she likes houmous.
I do too–and this version has a bit of a kick to it.
There’s garlic, cumin and cayenne in this mix–with olive oil and lemon juice to loosen it.
8 oz cooked chickpeas–I prefer the kind in jars
3 cloves of garlic–peeled and chopped
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons tahini
1 teaspoon cumin powder
1/2 teaspoon cayenne
2 tablespoons olive oil
juice of 2 lemons
Put all the ingredients except the lemon in a food mixer and whizz smooth.
Add half the lemon juice and taste.
Add the rest of the lemon juice as you like.
I just made it with all the juice of 2 lemons and it tastes right –it depends on the size and juiciness of the lemons.
