Lovely Sawsan, the Chef In Disguise, posted a recipe recently for her homemade hummus. It’s delicious!
I was up early yesterday morning, so I thought I’d give it a go. As advised, I’d soaked chickpeas the night before – it took less than half an hour of boiling to get them to the right consistency.
I was intrigued that Sawsan’s recipe included Greek yoghurt. We make it every week (it’s very easy – here’s our tutorial from 2010), so we always have some on hand. I also added a splash of hot water to the chickpeas as they were blitzing to produce a smoother result. The kitchen was a bombsite by 7am…
But it was so worth it! Sawsan’s recipe produces a silky smooth, rich dip with perfectly balanced flavours – it’s not too oily and the combination of yoghurt and lemon juice adds a delicious tang. If you’re still buying hummus from the supermarket, do give this a go. You’ll never go back!
