Hummus is a popular Middle Eastern dish which may be one of the worlds oldest prepared foods. It is high in iron and Vitamin C, and is a good source of Folate and B6. When engaged, I was fortunate enough to have 2 wedding showers. The shower my awesome brides maids threw for me which included a potluck recipe share. All the recipes were put into my recipe box that I am now sharing recipes from. My college roommate La brought yummy hummus so this recipe is hers!
1 medium onion chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 Tablespoons fresh lemon juice
2 Tablespoons Cider Vinegar
2 Tablespoons Tamari
1 Tablespoon Curry powder
2 15-ounce cans chick peas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup tahini
1/4 cup toasted sesame seeds
1/2 cup fresh parsley chopped
salt and pepper to taste
- In a food processor, puree: onion, garlic,lemon juice, vinegar, tamari, and curry powder until mixture is smooth.
- Add half of the chick peas and half of the tahini and blend until smooth.
- Add the remaining chick peas and tahini and blend coarsely so the mixture is chunky.
- Toast the sesame seeds in a heavy skillet over medium heat until they are golden. Shake the pan or stir constantly to avoid burning.
- Add sesame seeds and parsley to hummus and stir to blend.
- Adjust seasonings to taste.
