How to make a simple hummus the proper way!
You love it, we love it, almost everyone loves it, but how do you make authentic hummus?
In all honesty, most people buy ready-made hummus from the shops. It’s quick, tasty and pretty cheap – but by doing this you are missing out.
You can of course just use chickpeas straight from the tin, this works well but not as well as it can do. We believe the best way to make hummus is the traditional way boiling dried chickpeas. This saves cost, but also the final product is creamier.
Soaking before cooking and adding a pinch of baking soda to the chickpeas whilst they are boiling will help the cooking process and the breaking down of the chickpeas.
There is no need to add oil to this hummus recipe, although we add extra virgin olive oil on at the end as it adds an extra element of flavour, but you can do without if you prefer.
When we have eaten hummus in the middle east, it has almost always been served warm or room temparature. We think that this is the best way to serve hummus, but once again it’s your call.
