I just love hummus!
Not only is it delicious, it's packed full of healthy omega 3 fatty acids, protein, iron, manganese and amino acids. And the best thing of it all, it's so simple to make!
All you need a food processor, a blending wand or a blender, and the ingredients below and you're good to go!
In this recipe I decided to add a chipotle chilli and a little coriander to give a spicy and little extra Mexican flavor.
Serve with toasted pita bread or whole-wheat tortillas
1 can chickpeas, drained and rinsed
2 tbs. tahini
2 tbs. olive oil
3 tbs. lemon or lime juice
1 chipotle chilli, minced
2 garlic cloved, peeled and minced
1/2 cup water
salt to taste
4 tbs fresh coriander, finely chopped (optional)
For topping: extra olive oil and paprika
Throw all the above ingredients into a bowl (or the food processor) except for the water. Add the water little by little till you get the consistency you desire.
Blend the ingredients till smooth.
When serving top it off with 2-3 tbs of extra olive oil on top and sprinkle paprika for flavor and colorful presentation.
