To me, there is almost nothing better than a good hummus! Bet you I’m the only person to have ever said those words before! It’s just so moreish and you can put it on basically anything…. Hummus and carrots, hummus and cucumber, hummus and potato chips, hummus and a snickers bar….. Hey don’t knock it till you try it! However, today I’ll be making hummus with home-made flat bread. The recipe is easy and you can make some delicious and nutritious meals with these two basic recipes.
Ingredients for the hummus:
- 800 g of chickpeas
- 4 tsp of tahini
- 2 cloves of garlic (roughly chopped)
- 2 pinches of salt
- 6 tsp of extra virgin olive oil
- half a lemon (just the juice)
Ingredients for the flat bread:
- 3 cups of whole meal flour
- 3 tsp of baking powder
- 1 tsp of salt
- 2 tsp crack black pepper
- 2 cloves of crushed garlic
- 200 ml of water
1: Drain your chickpeas, but save about 1/4 a cup of the liquid. Place the chickpeas into a food processor and then add in your tahini (sesame paste), garlic, salt and the 1/4 cup of Chick pea can juices. Begin to blend all the ingredients together and slowly add in your olive oil until you get a smooth paste. Finish off with a squeeze of lemon juice and you’re all done.
2: For the flat bread; place your flour into a large mixing bowl along with the baking powder, salt, pepper and garlic. Slowly add in your water until you form a crumbly dough.
3: Turn the dough out on to a lightly floured board and begin kneading it. Continue to knead your dough until it is smooth and elastic.
4: tear off small balls of dough and with a rolling-pin, begin to roll out small disk shapes, about the size of a side plate.
5: Place a small skillet on your stove top and set the heat to low. Place the rolled out bread into the heated pan and cook on each side for 1 to 2 minutes, until it starts to rise and brown. Continue this process until you have used up all of your dough.
6: Place some warm flat bread on a serving plate along with a bowl of your freshly made hummus and some slices of cheese and fruit if you have some.
