The recipe is from "Grub" by Anna Lappe and Bryant Terry. I love this book. It has great insight and ideas. And the recipes are all wholesome and delicious.
Honestly, I don't even like hummus that much (I'm more of a baba ganoush girl), but I really do like this hummus. It's lemony, light, and fresh-tasting.
- 4 cups cooked chickpeas (2 16-oz. cans)
- 1/4 cup tahini
- 1/4 cup lemon juice, or to taste
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
- coarse sea salt
- 1/2 cup extra-virgin olive oil, plus more for drizzling
- freshly ground pepper
- paprika, for sprinkling
What to Do:
Basically, however it works for you, you just mash the stuff up! With preschoolers, that means using as many bowls and tools as possible, but for you, probably just a blender would do the trick. The "Grub" recipe suggests you first blend the chickpeas, tahini, lemon juice, garlic, and 3/4 teaspoon of salt. After that is smooth, add in the olive oil, and finally, the black pepper and paprika. Finish with a drizzle of olive oil and a little dash of paprika.
The little guys ate this up today and the teachers loved it too!
