Let's Cook with Meg and Ted
These are the basic ingredients for hummus bi tahina. Many recipes use a lot more tahini than this one - as much as 150 g tahini to 150 g chickpeas - but I prefer it like this. Play around with it until you find the taste that you like yourself.
|250 g||cooked chickpeas|
|2 tablespoons||olive oil|
|salt and freshly ground black pepper|
|flat-leaf parsley and cayenne pepper to serve, if you like.|
In a food processor, blend the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic and olive oil until it makes a paste. Add a little water to smooth it out if necessary. Add cumin, salt and pepper to taste. You may also need to add a little more lemon juice. Serve with pita bread, tabouli, etc.
