Quick & chunky hummus (or houmus)

15 Feb

This recipe carries with it a startling and depressing confession: Man Woman does not possess a food processor. Gasp! Shriek!

Alack, dear readers, ’tis true. So the reason that this following recipe is ‘chunky’ is partly because we couldn’t be stuffed mashing the chickpeas for any longer. The amount of liquid added to this, however, does make for a more, well, liquid hummus, and the lack of blitzing means that the texture ends up being desirable as well as the only one we’re capable of producing.

Chunky hummus

  • 1 can chickpeas
  • 1/2 C lemon juice
  • 1/4 C water
  • 1/3 C tahini
  • salt
  • sumac, paprika, mint or parsley to garnish

Mash chickpeas, combine with other liquids and salt to taste. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with spices, fresh or dried herbs & serve with bread or veg sticks.

Estimated cost: £1

Musical accompaniment: PJ Harvey, Let England Shake
