This one is for Jenn because she needs a good hummus recipe and I can’t find mine online anywhere. I think I got it from the Post Punk Kitchen years ago but it’s gone so I might be wrong. I never buy hummus because it’s always too spicy or garlicky, but I am a huge wimp when it comes to that stuff so your mileage may wary.
0.5 onion (or a whole one if it’s small)
2-3 cloves of garlic
a can of chickpeas
1 hot pepper or if you like me is supremely lazy, just up the spices
spices (cayenne, chili powder, cumin – the original recipe said coriander and garam masala too but I never do that)
1 tbsp lemon juice if you want (I don’t)
Chop the onion, sautee until translucent. Add the garlic, sautee a bit more. Then add chopped tomatoes and after a minute or so all other ingredients. You will Puree it with your handheld mixer or, if you unlike me don’t mind cleaning your food processor (I hate hate hate doing that) do it in that. It gets a bit smoother that way. You will probably have to add a bit of water to get the consistency right, so if you feel fancy, save some of the liquid from the chickpeas to add instead, but I usually don’t bother. Because, lazy.
It’s the best eaten hot. I always eat it with carrot sticks because I can’t really be bothered tracking down gluten free pita bread (this recipe really shows how lazy I am, doesn’t it?), but I think that would be yummy too.
