About Chickpea Hummus Recipe

I believe that Chickpea Hummus is some of the best food there is. It sounds like something uninspiring, but the blending of chickpeas, olive oil, tahini, lemon juice, and garlic makes an extraordinary snack.

The secret of the best chickpea hummus is that they should be cooked till they are soft and they are mushy. It’s made with real and healthy ingredients and is vegan!

Hummus is a delicious spread or dip made from chickpeas, tahini, lemon, and spices, mostly enjoyed in the Middle East and the Mediterranean. It has also traveled to India from the Middle East.

There are many variations of the dip, so each has its own charm. You can make many different versions of these delicious dips made from chickpeas and tahini with lemon and spices.

For this basic homemade hummus recipe, the seven basic ingredients, along with a good quantity of tahini, are key to smoothing out the hummus.

Cooking your own chickpeas involves soaking them first, then cooking them as normal until they are mushy, soft, and creamy.

I have developed many recipes in the past that taste good every time, and then I fell in love with this versatile dip.

I made this recipe by putting all the ingredients in a high-speed blender and blending until smooth.

You may want to use a mixer’s baton to activate the mixer to get things going but if not, you can always add more water to achieve the desired consistency.

When I was in Canada, Here in Canada, you can buy these versions in grocery stores, but I believe you should make them yourself because there are so many ways to enjoy this delicious dip. No mezze is complete without hummus. Mezze or meze is an assortment of small dishes typically eaten for snacking or light meals. The contents vary by region, but the basic idea of grazing stays the same.

Chickpea hummus

What is Hummus?

Chickpea Hummus is a delicious chickpea dip that is easy to prepare. It’s low in calories and low in carbs.

Make the dip with good olive oil (I use good olive oil for this dip, but you can use any oil like coconut oil, oil of your choice, or even a little salt).

When you really want to learn how to make hummus from scratch, dry chickpeas are the best option. If you have canned chickpeas, simmer for a short 20 minutes until thoroughly cooked and tender.

Using a food processor, blend the hummus mixture for 4-5 minutes until it is well-assembled and smooth. If you would like it even smoother, you could add some hot water and check it.

If you want a creamy hummus, peel the chickpeas and discard their shells. I sometimes don’t peel them and it doesn’t affect the taste.

They are

  • Healthy,
  • Vegan
  • Gluten-free
  • Great party side dish

Ingredients

It is easy to make, requires few ingredients, and is very tasty.

Chickpea – The main ingredient in this dish is chickpeas, and it has a healthy Earthy, and subtle taste. To make this recipe, I soak my chickpeas and boil them, although you can also use canned chickpeas.

Just clean them thoroughly before using them.

Extra Virgin Olive Oil – Make this dip with the best quality olive oil; it gives a very peculiar taste to this dish.

Tahini – Tahini is made of olive oil mixed with salt and a few tablespoons of olive or coconut oil. It has a very peculiar flavor.

Besides this, you will also need roasted cumin powder, paprika, lemon juice, garlic, and salt.

Storage Suggestion

It is also fine to freeze. Transfer it to a freezer-safe container and freeze for up to 4 months.

Defrost it overnight and serve. You can store it in the refrigerator for up to a week in an airtight container, so be sure to close the container tightly after each use.
