Hummus recipe

Good idea Ed!

I'll post a few recipes per Ed's suggestion, since I enjoy cooking. Here is one for Hummus. I'm not sure where this came from but I like to make it and dip toasted pita wedges in it. mmmmm


Hummus Bi Tahini
· 1/2 cup dried garbanzo beans (chickepeas)
· 2 teaspoons salt, to taste
· 4 cloves garlic, crushed
· 1/2 cup tahini
· 1 Tablespoon olive oil (good quality extra virgin)
· dash paprika
· sprinkle fresh parsley, chopped
Recipe Directions:
Rinse and sort beans, then soak overnight in cold water to cover.
Drain and place beans in a saucepan with enough cold water to cover; stir in salt. Bring to a boil; reduce heat, cover and simmer 2 hours or until beans are very tender. Drain RESERVING cooking liquid !

Place drained beans in a food processor fitted with a metal blade and process until smooth, adding the cooking liquid as needed to get a smooth, creamy texture. I end up using about 3/4 of the cooking liquid I have to get the right texture. You don't want this too thick; but start slowly and add as needed.

Add garlic, tahini and lemon juice. Process until blended, add salt to taste.

Turn hummus into a serving dish, smooth the surface and drizzle with olive oil to make a thin layer over the surface. Garnish with paprika and parsley as desired. Don't skip the olive oil step, it really adds to the final taste of the dip.

Okay friend, you've worked up an appetite for me! Sounds good. Let's hope we can get others to post more recipes. I'm not much of a cook, but I sure know how to eat!

Greg - I've tried hummus before and it's really good (there's a great Lebanese restaurant near my house that makes great hummus), but I've never seen any recipes for it until now. I'll have to try it out.

Ron- I didn't know what it was either, so I did a search on google and found this:

Quote:
Tahini
This tan-colored substance, made from sesame seeds, is thick in consistency. The seeds are first toasted and then ground with peanut oil. Because no emulsifiers are used, the Tahini will separate with time. This is normal; just stir before using. Its most popular use is in the Himmus Be-Tahini dish. It can be found in health-food stores, Middle Eastern stores and some supermarkets.

Ron - Sesame seeds are to tahini what peanuts are to peanut butter. So, if you've made peanut butter before, then you shouldn't have too much difficulty. But I've never had a problem finding tahini already made. If you can't find it in your regular supermarket (probably in the international foods section) and you don't have any international markets near you, you might try a natural food store or co-op. I've never known a natural foods store not to carry it (sometimes they even have it in bulk). If you still can't find it, then by all means try making it yourself - hummus is great! Try it spread on tortillas, topped with lettuce, tomatoes and onions and rolled up. Or as a dip with pita bread. Or on a bagel with sprouts. Mmmmmm.

And tahini itself makes a great sandwich with honey or rice syrup. It's also good tossed with soba noodles and chilled. The possibilities are endless!

This is a recipe for traditional Tahini Dressing. It's what we always put on our humus or falafal.

Tahini Dressing

1/2 cup Tahini
1/2 cup water
1 Tablespoon soy sauce
1 Tablespoon Lemon joice
1/8 teaspoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons dried chives

Place tahini in a small bowl. Gradually add water, stirring until blended. Add remaining ingredients, mixing well.
