Whole Spice Hummus Recipe

Make this delicious Whole Spice Hummus recipe for your next summer BBQ. It’s sure to be a hit!

(Serves 6)

Ingredients:
1 cup dry garbanzo beans
2 1/2 cups water
6 Tbs. tahini paste
6 Tbs. fresh lemon juice
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1 garlic clove, minced
1/4 tsp. cumin powder
Olive Oil (for drizzling)

Directions:
In a pressure cooker combine water and garbanzo beans.
Bring to boil and reduce heat to low.
Simmer for 3 hours: Beans should be very soft and slightly caramelized at the end of the cooking and also you should have some remaining liquid to be used later (see Cook’s Note below).
When done, let cool until beans are warm before blending.

Transfer the beans (and the remaining liquid), lemon juice, salt, cumin and garlic to a food processor and blend until smooth.
Add Tahini paste and blend until flavored and thickened. (Hummus has a tendency to thicken up as it cools and water can be added later if desired.)

Spread the hummus into a flat serving dish and drizzle with olive oil.
Sprinkle one of the following spices on top: Chili California, Marash Chili, Zhug or Harissa.

Cook’s note: The remaining water at the end of the cooking should be reduced to about 1/3 inch below top of the beans. If more water remains, then cook uncovered until water reduces.
