Gourmet moment – Hummus

December 13, 2014

Good Saturday evening my dear readers!  I hope that you’re doing well and have bared through  shopping for Christmas presents craze!

I don’t know about your city, but in Helsinki, there’re  rivers of people at shopping malls, random little stores, cafes, restaurants, streets and everybody has tons of bags in their hands. Christmas time is so exciting and can you believe that Christmas is in only 12 days!?!?

I’ve been creative at kitchen today and since I usually like to make everything from scratch when I cook, I’ve decided to share one of my absolute favourite and healthy dips/ spreads and it’s hummus!

It’s so easy to prepare and you can alter it as you wish, but I’m giving you the recipe for the most “classic” hummus.

You’ll need:

*600 grams/ 2,5 cups of chickpeas (if you use canned ones, make sure to rinse them with water)

*1 tablespoon of olive oil

*1 tablespoon of tahini

*teaspoon of cumin


*juice of 1 lemon

*1 garlic clove (minced)

Add chickpeas and lemon juice to the blender/ food processor and mash everything evenly. Then add the rest of the ingredients, stir everything well with the spoon and add a little bit of water to reach the more smoother consistency.

That’s it! SO easy, ready before you know it and so healthy.

If you want to make it more “exciting” add some powder bell pepper or mash some sundried tomatoes and mix it together with the hummus. Options are practically endless.

I’ve served hummus with the side of roasted sweet potatoes, self-made guacamole and quickly fried halloumi cheese bites.

    Yummy! I love hummus with baby carrots or tapenade, perfect for a snack but as a main dish it looks also great!

    Ovo je previše zdravo za mene! 🙂 Nisam neki fan humusa, moram biti iskrena… iako kad god ti nešto pripremiš i onda nam to još lijepo pofotkaš, meni cure sline! 🙂
