A side of hummus always makes a good side dish I reckon, or even as a starter avec some pitta bread.
I was browsing around in Whole foods and stumbled across a jar of tahini and decided I will buy it to make some hummus. This recipe beats those you eat at Lebanese/ arabic places, plus its healthier. I don’t know about you, but I usually find the hummus from restaurants drenched in oil.
You will want to give this a go. All you need:
a can of chickpeas (400g)
2 tablespoons of tahini
2 crushed garlic cloves
1 teaspoon of salt
2 tablespoon of olive oil
2 tablespoon of lemon
coriander or parsley leaves to finish
1-Rinse your chickpeas in cold water and drain
2- add to the food processor and add all ingredients to it and give it a good mix until it forms a smooth paste.
3-You can add more oil/ lemon juice to taste
4-tip into your serving dish, drizzle a little olive oil
5- add your slices of radish and garnish with coriander/parsley
That is it, easy peesy lemon squeezy, and it goes great with a side of crusty bread or some carrot sticks 🙂
It makes a great starter dish if you have guests coming round and you need to keep them entertained whilst you are finishing the remaining touches to your main or it is taking a little longer than expected to cook. We all know that is often the case (well it with me).
