    Tahini paste (already prepared)

  • Chickpeas boiled 2 & ½ cups

Garnish:

Directions:

To prepare Tahini paste, toast sesame seed in a dry pan for 3-4 min on a low flame until seeds are fragrant and change color (don’t over toast them to brown) we need very light brown color.

Add toasted seed in a blender and add ¼ cup olive and blend well until it becomes a creamy paste. ½ cup of Tahini paste is ready which you can keep in refrigerator in an airtight jar for a month.

To prepare hummus, in tahini paste add hummus ingredients gradually and blend.

Blend well and scrap side in between and again blend. Keep repeating until it is creamy and well mixed. Hummus is ready. Add water according to your desired consistency. We added 2 tablespoons of water.

Now dish out hummus, make well with a spoon and drizzle olive oil and paprika. Add 1-2 black or green olive for garnish.

You can refrigerate hummus in an airtight container for up to a week.
