More Mediterranean food. And today we will prepare a delicious Hummus. A delicacy for everyone, not only for vegetarians. Chickpeas could not taste better. This is one of those recipes that, despite being so simple, gives us a lot of pleasure. Chickpeas, olive and sesame oil, lemon, spices… Let’s make it.


1 can chickpeas
2 cloves garlic
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon sesame oil
2 tablespoons lemon juice
½ tablespoon ground cumin
½ teaspoon hot paprika
½ teaspoon sweet paprika
1 tablespoon parsley or cilantro
Some pita bread

We will start with the chickpeas. First, as I use a can of chickpeas, I will rinse and drain the chickpeas. Do this properly. Instead of using a can of chickpeas, you can also cook some chickpeas, but then the process will be longer because you will have to soak them overnight first and then cook them.
Once we have the chickpeas ready, we will put them in a food processor. We will add the garlic, which will be slightly chopped. We will also add the extra virgin olive oil, the sesame oil, the lemon juice, the cumin and the hot paprika.
You can use tahini instead of sesame oil but I prefer sesame oil. You can add more garlic too. Remember that you can adapt the recipe to your taste.
We will turn on the food processor. We must get a soft mixture. We might have to add more olive oil, or if you like your Hummus strong, you can add more sesame oil.
Once you have your Hummus ready, serve it with some sweet paprika, parsley or cilantro and pita bread. Some drops of extra virgin olive oil will be a good idea now.

I love hummus, but have never tried preparing it myself. For some reason I always thought it would be difficult, but I think I can handle this recipe. Thanks!

My girlfriend keeps asking me to make her hummus. This recipe sounds like it has just the right balance of flavor.

In English, people usually say hum-us, in hebrew the us are long and pronounced so in the word who. the is pronouced in that infamous sound.

I have never tried hummus. This recipe looks really yummy. I’ll try cooking this if I have time.

I’ve never tried making it with sesame oil before. Thanks for the tip.
