Today I was meeting up with my lovely friends M. and E. at this new place called 'Coffee Room' they just opened up a couple of months ago and it's really just 1 block away from my house! As you might have noticed I'm a bit of a hummus addict lately, I just love it so much..So I again ordered a sandwich Hummus today.. When I got home I still felt like eating hummus (don't ask me why I crave hummus so much.. cause I don't even know the answer myself.. :| ) I thought I make my own spicy 'Jalapeño-Hummus'. I think it's nicer when you make your own hummus, so you can spice it exactly the way you like it! What inspired me to make a jalapeño-hummus is because there is this market-stand on the 'Ten Kate' market and this guy sells all different hummuses even 'Mango-hummus'.. and it's really super good! Mmm ok next time I'll try to make my version of mango-hummus ok?!
It's super easy, and super delish! I was like 'done' in 10 min. of time!
Ingredients you need:
- 1 can of chickpeas ( I peal all the peas by hand.. there's this soft shell around it, if you take it of using your fingertips the hummus will be much smoother. but no problem if you leave them on)
- 4 spoons of tahin (stir it well first)
- juice of 1 lemon (start with 1/2 a lemon juice..I like it when it's lemony)
- 1 glove of Garlic
- 4 jalapeño peppers
- some sea salt & pepper
- a bit of cumin
- 2 spoons of olive oil
This is SO super easy to make, I don't even think I have to write all the steps down, I mean there are no 'steps', just mix everything together in your kitchen-machine until it's all smooth.
At the end you pour a bit of olive oil on top with some crushed walnuts and you're done! Go get your carrots and dip them in! MMMmm... Also a good idea when you have your friends over for dinner and if you're still not done working in the kitchen.. just put a bowl with your home-made hummus on the table with a plate of thinly sliced cucumber, carrots and maybe some bread and let your guests start dipping with that. This way you give yourself some more time to finish up your work in the kitchen! Your guests won't even know you're not there... the hummus will distract them! ;)
