In Norway hummus is an expensive thing to buy, and to be honest not much used in our diet, so you can’t find it everywhere. So before I moved to England I didn’t know what it was, and had no idea how to make it. But now it is one of my favourite items in the fridge, for snacks and for a side with dinner, on bread on a baked potato, I use it a lot!
Super easy to make when you get the hang of it!
There are tons of different ways to add flavour to you hummus, but I’m showing you one with roasted pepper, but this can be varied and I’ll talk more about this later.
- 1 pepper cut in big chunks with a drizzle olive oil, in the oven full wack (250 degrees celsius) for 15 min
- 2 tins of chickpeas (rinsed)
- juice of 2 lemons
- 1 table spoon tahini, this is a sesame paste you can get at any supermarkets in England, but in Norway you might need to go to Asia store to buy it
- 2 cloves of garlic
- 4 spoons olive oil
- half cup water (add more if the hummus is dry to make it silky)
- 2 teaspoons of cumin
- 2 teaspoons of paprika powder
- Put peppers in the oven for 15 min.
- All other ingredients put in a food blender or some type of kitchen food processor.
- mix it all up till it is smooth, if it feels dry or have bits in it add more water til it has a silky texture.
- When peppers are done, add them to the blender and blend for 3 more minutes.
- store in a container in the fridge.
This hummus lasts for about 5 days in the fridge, and you can make it with chilli, coriander, red pepper, just plain with no pepper, what ever you fancy.
I serve mine in a bowl, add a little oil on top and some chilli or paprika powder just to make it look pretty:)
Hope this was helpful, let me know if you have questions, didn’t succeed or anything else!
