Homemade Hummus

Homemade Hummus Recipe

Homemade Hummus is a traditional dish of the Middle East. There is a lot of debate where and when hummus appeared… We won’t argue! The best hummus is the one that you cook yourself at home.

The composition of the perfect hummus:

– tahini

– chickpeas

– garlic

– olive oil

– cumin

is a pinch of your love for cooking!

We are looking for tahini here.

We take canned chickpeas or soak them overnight (at least 12 hours) and boil for another hour.

How to cook?

Mix everything! A blender, a combine harvester will help or a large mortar will help you!
