Turkish chickpea dip - HUMUS


Firstly, HUMUS has nothing to do with the soil. It is a Mediterranean dip, sometimes eaten as a main dish if served with veggies or fried egg. This recipe was inspired by my husband's mother. The way my husband likes... spicy...very spicy...

Hummus - chickpea dip

300gr of boiled chickpeas
4 cloves of garlic
5 table spoons of lemon juice
salt and pepper
5 table spoons of olive oil ( plus 2 table spoons of oil for garnish)
3 table spoons of sesam seed puree ( tahini)
some water
parsley
red pepper flakes ( TR. - pul biber)

What we have to do:

1. Put the boiled chickpeas, garlic, salt and pepper, lemon juice and olive oil into a blender and blend until it turns into a puree. Add water if it gets too thick. Add sesam seed puree and mix it.
2. Serve humus on the plate, spread it evenly with a knife. Sprinkle some spices and some olive oil. Garnish with fresh parsley or mint!
3. Enjoy!!! :)
