This authentic hummus recipe comes from my Egyptian born aunt and has become a popular request at parties.
– canned chickpeas
– fresh garlic cloves
– Tahini (roasted sesame
– fresh lemon juice
– olive oil
– sumac or paprika
– flat parsley for garnish
Drain the canned chickpeas, saving the liquid. Place chickpeas and garlic in a food processor. Add Tahini, lemon juice & salt and blend.
Add chickpea liquid until the mixture is as thin as you like. It may even set up a bit so I normally make it on the thin to ensure a creamy texture.
Pour into a serving dish. Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with sumac or paprika and garnish with a bit of fresh parsley.
Serve with warm pita wedges or pita chips.
