Humus with Tahini

Humus with Tahini

This is a good fast recipe, about 10 minutes. If you are having friends over and need things to pick on. Just be sure to have enough bread for everyone. Most of the ingredients should be in the cabinet already.

Because this is so simple it was extremely popular back in the eighties but really has never disappeared which is a tribute to its constant popularity.

This should be enough for 6 people with a couple of other small things to pick on. Try marinated artichoke hearts and some thinly sliced salami.

Instructions
  1. Drain and rinse the chick peas and put them in a food processor with the humus, parsley, garlic and olive and process until it forms a very smooth paste.
  2. Add your warm water a little at a time to help smooth out the chick peas while your processing them. Humus is a dip and isn't supposed to be chunky.
  3. Salt and pepper to taste and add the lemon juice to taste as well. I should be just a tiny bit tart.
  4. Remove the Humus to a nice decorative bowl and decorate with a few olives and the paprika.
  5. If you are using the sumac seeds, heat the additional oil until hot and add the sumac seeds. Be careful they will spit and splatter. Fry for about 30 seconds and then pour over the Humus.
  6. If you don't use the sumac seed drizzle a little olive oil over the Humus after decorating it.
Recipe Notes

You can of course use dried chick peas, they will need to be soaked over night and cooked the following day. Canned chick peas work very well for this, be sure to pick out any discolored peas from the cans.

Sumac is a seed that's flavor is lemony and is an authentic way of using them with Humus.

The quality of prepacked chick peas can vary a great deal weather or not they are canned or dried. Try and purchase good quality chick peas.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.

Canapes


I don't have a many canapes here. The ones I share are super quick, very tasty and most of all tasty. Your guests will appreciate the effort.
