Hummus chickpea

This weekend I have guests at home and I thought I would give them a "tasting menu" so that they know the riches of Arab cuisine. There are many people who do not know the food of the Arab countries, and I really tell you, whenever you have the opportunity, please try it. You will be surprised how exotic and tasty it can be.

One of the dishes that I am going to prepare for Saturday is the hummus. This dish could be compared to a very tasty chickpea cream or puree. It is believed that the origin is in Egypt, however, today it is a very widespread dish throughout Middle East. It is eaten with Arabic bread or pita bread, which we will cut into small triangles and which we will use to “dip”. It is important that to give it the authentic Arabic touch, you use tahini. It is a brown cream made from sesame (you can already find it in large stores).

Its preparation is very easy, it is a good idea to use as a starter, it is a very healthy dish and it can be left prepared in advance. I have used canned chickpeas (to shorten time) but, of course, if you want you can cook your own dried chickpeas. Let's go there!

  4.   Valmita said

    Hello, I would like to make the recipe because I tried it one day and I loved it but I don't know where to buy the tahine. Any super that has it? Thank you.

    1.    Ángela said

      I bought it at Corty Stores Gourmet Club and it was not expensive. Also, say that it is a natural food with a high calcium content.

      You can find tahine in herbal stores, in Arabic food stores (it is much better) that are in practically all cities and in the English court supermarket in the area of ​​dietary products (at least in Valencia). I have been doing it for a long time and also, to soften, instead of adding water from the chickpea broth, I put two tablespoons of natural yogurt and to serve it over the oil, I put some toasted pine nuts (that's how they have served me in Arab restaurants). Hummus is delicious to me!

      1.    Valmita said

        Thank you both for answering me, I will look for it in courtingles, if there is luck.

        1.    Irene Thermorecetas said

          Thank you very much girls for giving us a hand in answering the comments, what would we do without us !. In Madrid you can buy tahine at Carrefour, Alcampo, El Corte Inglés ... either in the international section or in the salsa, mayonnaise area ...

      2.    Irene Thermorecetas said

        Ohhhh María José, I really like your variety. I will try it next time, surely the yogurt of a very special point. Thanks for sharing!

    1.    Ascend said

      Great, Ines. When you try it… tell us if you like it!
      Regards, Ascen

  8.   Maite said

    Maite I would like you to tell me that it is the tahine because I really don't fall now thanks

    1.    Irenearcas said

      Hello maite! Tahine is a paste that is made from sesame seeds. It is not essential to make the dish, but if it is a recipe that you are going to prepare with a certain frequency, it does not hurt to buy it. It keeps in the fridge for 6 months and you can find it in supermarkets or in specialized Arabic food stores, in vegetarian food stores or even in some herbalists. Lucky!

  9.   Irenearcas said

    How good Sandra! It is true that tahine gives it a unique touch, but I like hummus so much that when I don't have it ... I also prepare it ... it is sooooo good. Thanks for writing to us!

  10.   Sandra said

    I would like to know how much would be the weight of raw chickpeas
    Greetings and I love your page

    1.    Irene Arcas said

      Hello Sandra, we could say that the basic rule is that a legume increases its size x3 during cooking. So in this case a jar of chickpeas usually brings about 400g so its approximate weight in dry chickpeas would be 133g. I hope I have helped you and thank you for following us !!
