I had some store-bought hummus earlier today, and I suddenly came to a startling realization. I have completely spoiled myself with my amazing homemade hummus, and I can’t eat the store bought stuff anymore.
Want to taste the amazing recipe for my Homemade Toasted Sesame Hummus? Note: The site that previously hosted this guest post is no longer active, so scroll down for the recipe.
- ¼ cup sesame seeds
- 1 clove garlic
- 2 cans chickpeas, drained
- ½ cup tahini paste
- juice of 1 lemon (about 3 Tablespoons)
- ¼ cup water
- ¼ cup olive oil
- 1½ teaspoons salt
- 1 teaspoon cumin
- To toast sesame seeds: (optional) Preheat oven to 350. Pour the sesame seeds into a small baking pan and bake for 8-12 minutes, until light golden brown. Remove from oven and set aside to cool.
- To prepare the hummus: In the bowl of a food processor, fitted with the "s" blade, mince the garlic. Add the remaining ingredients (except for the sesame seeds) and puree until almost smooth, but leave a bit of texture. (If you prefer a very smooth hummus, blend it a bit more.) Remove hummus from food processor and place in a bowl. Stir in the toasted sesame seeds, reserving a few for garnish.
Come back soon, I have a real fun treat for you guys! -Miriam
