Hummus....

My sister always makes the most delicious fresh Hummus.... She was kind enough to share the recipe with me and now I in turn am passing it on to you....
Ab-Ab's Hummus
2 cups of canned chickpeas, 1/2 cup of yogurt, 2T tahini, 2T lemon juice, 1/8t ground cumin, 1 clove of garlic crushed, cracked pepper, 1t olive oil.
Place chickpeas and yogurt in a food processor and blend until just combined. Add tahini, lemon juice, cumin, garlic and black pepper and blend again to form a smooth paste. Now drizzle in the olive oil and process for 30 seconds. Store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days and enjoy at regular intervals throughout the day (like I do... hehehe) with your favourite crackers and sliced veggies.....
I've also found that both my girls (3yrs and 8mths) love this dip too which is a bonus. It's a great source of Protein, Calcium and Iron just to name a few... A Yum-mo recipe and a definite staple in my trusty home cook-book from now on.....
What's your favourite dip recipe???
Take Care :)

  1. Yum - we have not bought hommus in years and make our own often. (actually our morning teas often look very much like your photo:) I have not seen a recipe with yoghurt used before (will have to try it) and I use dried chickpeas soaked overnight and then boiled - super yum:)

    The favourite recipe in our house at the moment would have to be the choc chip and banana bread - you should try it:)

  2. Ah, Abby is your sister, small blog world! We love a bit of hummous here too but I've never used yoghurt before. Must give that a go. We love a dinner of pita, felafel balls, salad and hummous.

  3. Thanks for sharing! I love hummus but I never thought of putting yogurt in it! We're celebrating my daughter's and niece's birthdays this weekend and hummus is on the menu so I will have to try it! I love hummus but my favorite would probably be an avocado something. Just mashed with a little salt and pepper. I love avos and we get them in abundance here!

  4. I adore hummus so will have to give this a try. Thanks for the recipe.
    I must say that guacamole is my all time favorite dip! Good on sandwiches too. Yum!

  5. mmm looks so yummy!
    Favourite dip would have to be half a jar of corn relish mixed with a container of sour cream, blended with the electric beaters to make it nice and smooth.
