This is an easy homemade recipe for the delicious chickpea-based dip, hummus. Originally from the Middle East, hummus has become hugely popular all over the world, and is produced industrially in the West. But making your own hummus is actually extremely easy, it’s healthier than store-bought hummus, and you can choose exactly which flavourings to use to make it your own. We like to infuse our hummus with seaweed for a hit of umami, as well as its many health benefits. For those exploring plant-based diets, chickpea water (known as aquafaba) can be reserved for a number of uses, often replacing egg whites in vegan recipes.
This recipe serves about 6
Cooking time: 15 minutes
2x 400g cans chickpeas
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 tsp tahini
3 tsp cumin
1 tsp paprika
3 tsp Arctic Ocean Greens
1 ½ lemons
Salt and pepper to taste
Drain chickpeas over a bowl, reserving the water (aquafaba) from the can.
Using a food processor, blend the chickpeas to a paste.
While the food processor is blending on a low setting, add the aquafaba and lemon juice until you reach your desired consistency. Add the garlic, tahini, cumin, paprika, salt, pepper and Arctic Ocean Greens. Make sure to taste as you go.
Keep blending, tasting and adjusting until you are happy.
Serve with crackers or sliced vegetables and pickles.
