The next few recipes that I will be posting are part of the Mediterranean cuisine – one of my favorite cuisines.
Hummus is an integral part of the mediterranean cuisine and is also one of my favorites. Hummus can be had with pita bread, a regular bread, on a bagel, and lots of different ways. Also, it can be made with a lot of different variations.
This is recipe 21 of 30 🙂
Garbanzo beans – 1 cup
Tahini – 3-4 tablespoons
Olive oil – 2 tablespoons
Lemon juice – 2 tablespoons
Garlic – 4 cloves (roasting is optional)
Coriander powder – 1 tablespoon
Salt – to taste
Water – as necessary (no more than 1/2 cup)
- Soak garbanzo beans overnight (or use canned garbanzo beans – 1 can, for which, no soaking required). If not using the canned ones, add some salt and pressure cook until soft.
- Puree the garbanzo beans in a blender, gradually adding, tahini paste (available in most grocery stores), peeled garlic, coriander powder, salt (if needed), lemon juice, and water, one after the other. The mixture can be made either very smooth or a little coarse.
