hummus

This is a quick and easy recipe;as always. Good for an appetizer or side dish . It was a bit difficult to classify , because you can find it as part of the culture in three continents so, to make everyone happy you will find this recipe under Africa, Europe and Asia jijii...  I hope you can enjoy it with your loved ones.

INGREDIENTS 
INSTRUCTIONS 

45  OZ                            CHICKPEAS 

                                       (the equivalent of about 3 cans)

1/3 CUP                         EXTRA VIRGIN OLIVE OIL

1/8 CUP                         TAHINI

2 CLOVES                       GRATED GARLIC 

1/4 CUP                          LEMON &LIME JUICE

                                        (I used 2 lemons & 1 lime)

1/4 CUP                          ICED WATER 

                                        SALT & PEPPER TO TASTE

                                       SUMAC & ZA'ATAR TO DECORATE

1. PREPARE THE CHICKPEAS. IF YOU WISH TO USED DRIED ONES LIKE I DID, JUST USE HALF A PACKET IN 6 CUPS OF WATER WITH SOME SALT;  THEN IN A SLOW COOKER SET IT ON LOW FOR EIGHT HOURS. IF YOU'RE USING CANNED ONES JUST DRAIN THREE CANS AND RINSE. 

2. CUT AND PREPARE INGREDIENTS. 

3. IN A FOOD PROCESSOR OR BLENDER ADD THE CHICKPEAS. THEN DO A COUPLE OF PULSES JUST TO GET THE PUREEING STARTED. 

4. THEN ADD THE TAHINI, GARLIC,LEMON & LIME JUICE, SALT AND PEPPER AND MIX 

5. ADD THE OLIVE OIL SLOWLY UNTIL INCORPORATED. 

6. THEN ADD THE ICE WATER . WHICH WILL HELP WITH THE TEXTURE OF THE HUMUS, MAKING IT AIRY AND FLUFFY . 

7. ADJUST SEASONINGS TO TASTE. WHETHER  YOU WANT IT MORE LEMONY OR LES GARLICKY, SALTIER. MAKE IT YOUR OWN. 

ENJOY ;)
