Hummus has been there for me like nothing else. From eating 2 for 2 hummus in the UK at the co-op on campus (Or lugging it from Sainsburys, ASDA etc) to coming back to making my own has been great. This time its even better, since I really did not have to look at a recipe, and was innovative enough to use six seeds to make it. Throw out that tahini, use raw seeds, makes much better hummus, in my opinion. Although my comparison marker is Co-op hummus. Bleh. Although this will be good though trust me. Yes.
So here goes.
TOASTED SIX SEED HUMMUS
What you need: (Im not giving out exact quantities this time, just to confuse you and ensure you use your culinary imagination. In other words im lazy)
Chickpeas (soaked overnight in water, then boiled in the morning with fresh water and salt)
Lemon juice (2-3 tablespoons is what i used)
Garlic, chopped up (Use as much or as little as you want)
A cup of mixed seeds (I had a seed mix, a five seed mix packet, which had cucumber, musk melon, watermelon, and two others which I dont know of , plus I added half a cup of sesame seeds, which are pretty critical)
What to do:
1. Toast the seeds.
2. Blend everything together. If it doesnt fit, do this in batches. Then give a box with loads of hummus and loads of love to your near and dear ones. Or enjoy some on toast. Or bathe in it. Or dance with it. Enjoy it basically. Hummus and life are both to be enjoyed everyday types. x
