Lemony Chick Pea Hummus Pinterest

This easy lemony chick pea hummus is full of zingy flavors brought by the addition of lime juice, garlic, tahini and spicy sriracha, a delicious appetizer that will disappear in not time!

For this simple and easy hummus recipe, I like to use canned chick peas or garbanzo, it just makes it easier to make hummus in the spur of the moment rather than using dry chick peas and soaking them overnight.

If you own a Vitamix you can just dump all your ingredients in the bowl, process and serve. If you’re going to make this hummus in a food processor, it is better to remove the skins of chick peas so to achieve a creamy texture.

To remove the skins, I soak my chick peas into a large volume of water, rub a handful between my hands, the skins will float and every now and then I’ll gather and discard them.

I really like to add tahini in all my hummus recipes, I so love the taste of this sesame paste that I can’t make without, if you don’t like it just leave it out.

I like to serve hummus just like this on its own with your choice of bread or veggies cut in sticks but it is also a delicious spread for any kind of toasts, top it with your choice of veggies, hard boiled eggs, cold cuts, etc.

This hummus will be delicious for about two days if it lasts that long, not in my house though!

Recipe :

Ingredients:

15.5 oz. (434 g.) canned chick peas, drained

1garlic clove, peeled

Juice of 1 lime

1tsp black or white pepper, or to taste

2 tsp Sriracha, or to taste

2 tbsp. Tahini

1/4 cup of water, more if necessary

1/4 cup of olive oil, more if necessary

Instructions:

Remove the skin of all the chick peas (if you own a Vitamix, skip this step)

Put all the ingredients in the bowl of a food processor, be careful with the sriracha and pepper as I like my food hot and spicy, process until creamy and smooth

Taste and adjust seasoning if necessary

Pour into a pretty serving bowl, create a large crease on top with the back of a spoon and fill it with olive oil

Serve as an appetizer with a choice of breads, crackers or veggies cut in sticks or as a spread base for toasts, top with avocado, radishes, hard boiled eggs, tuna, cold cuts, etc.

Enjoy!
