Hummus is a nutritious delicious fragrant Lenten dish of boiled chickpeas with the addition of sesame paste from fried sesame seeds and spices, in General, it is the most tender pate. Since chickpeas are cooked and sesame is roasted (if not, there are links at the bottom of the recipe), let's cook a trendy and delicious hummus!
Roasted sesame is ground in a coffee grinder or in a special chopper to a small crumb. Add a spoon of olive oil and beat. So we get tahina. Since we are going to use an immersion blender to make hummus, I decided to simplify the task and just mixed sesame crumbs with olive oil without whipping.
Spread in a suitable vessel tahini, add boiled chickpeas, spices and salt. It is mandatory to go to hummus: lemon juice, olive oil, garlic and Zira (cumin). Other spices according to Your desire, but very good chickpeas combined with coriander and paprika (smoked is great), you can also add hot pepper. The most important condition - all spices must be young, so that in hummus did not come across solid pieces.
Immersion blender gently begin to grind the chickpeas and mix the ingredients. Gradually add olive oil and lemon juice. These two components are responsible for the balance of taste and consistency of hummus, turning pea pate with bitter tahini in an exquisite delicate and spicy delicacy with nutty flavor and lemon notes.
Punch hummus blender to a state of perfect tender pate without lumps. Try the hummus taste and adjust salt/spices. Cover the bowl with cling film and put the hummus in the fridge for 1 hour for maturation.
Serve hummus can be in a salad bowl or bowl, or, holding the salad bowl 15-20 minutes in the freezer, cover it with a plate for filing and turn, as I did. Rotating a plate with one hand, draw grooves with the other hand using a fork. From above in the center of the hummus usually is done a slight deepening in which is poured olive oil. Pour hummus on top with olive oil and lemon juice. Sprinkle with paprika and chopped fresh herbs, decorate as desired and imagination and serve. Hummus is served with flatbreads, crackers, bread and even as a side dish to meat. Enjoy your meal!
