Sadato's Famous Hummus
- 4 cups cooked chickpeas (after soaking chickpeas overnight)
- 1 ½ cups organic tahini
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp lemon juice
- salt (to taste)
- extra olive oil (optional )
- pine nuts (optional garnish)
Soak chickpeas overnight.
Pour out water and boil in fresh water for about an hour, or cook in pressure cooker for 12-20 minutes.
In a strong blender or BPA-free food processor, cream in the tahini with olive oil and lemon juice.
Salt to taste.
Add the chickpeas very gradually - about 1/8 cup at a time, and blend until creamy.
Serve in a bowl and add some extra olive oil. I like to add pine nuts as well. Picture shows pine nuts, basil and paprika.
Use as many organic ingredients as possible.
