I don’t know how to start talking about hummus. A staple in any Lebanese feast(Mezze). There have been so variations to it recently- from beetroot the chocolate hummus, but this recipe here, it’s the original one, where it all started! It’s all about getting the proportions right- putting too much tahini will make it dry, and not adding enough garlic and lemon will just make it bland. I hope you enjoy this one, and if you’re feeling adventurous, you can add minced beef with fried pine nuts on top!

What you need:

2 cans of soaked chickpeas

3/4 cup tahini

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 Crushed Garlic cloves

Pinch of Salt

Olive oil and 1 teaspoon paprika


Combine chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and salt in a food mixer until smooth. Place in a bowl and add olive oil and sprinkle with paprika. Enjoy!
