Mum’s Hommous

16 Oct

It doesn’t seem to matter how many times I make this one, it is never as good as my Mum’s.

FACT: My Mum makes gosh darn good hommous.


What’s in it?

  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 1 tin of chickpeas, save half the juice from the tin
  • 3/4 cup of tahini
  • 1/2 cup of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • “a glug” (dollop, sloosh etc) of olive oil.
  • chilli to taste

Put all the ingredients in a blender, or food processor and blend the bergebers out of it. Then blend it some more. Then blend it a little more, for good luck. You want it to be as smooth and silky as possible.

I like to sprinkle a little cayenne pepper over it, once it is presented. But this is just a personal preference. Parsley is good too. Fresh flat bread (Lebanese bread probably if you’re buying it) is a necessity here.
