Hummus tahini recipe

nut free - gluten free - oil free - high protein

By Jasmin

Hummus literally translate to “chickpeas” in Arabic, an abbreviation of the dish’s full name “hummus bi tahini” (chickpeas with tahini).  Hummus is a dip made from a smooth fluffy cooked chickpea purée with tahini, lemon juice and salt. A three ingredients delicious high protein dip potentially upgradable to a main dish with the proper topping. Although it’s one of the few vegan dishes I can order here in Morocco, I prefer to make my own hummus at home . A simple recipe using three ingredients to make the best hummus tahini: cooked chickpea (from a can or fresh. I’m using homemade cooked sprouted chickpeas), tahini and lemon juice.
