Personally, I love smoked paprika and always put a boat load in my hummus.
I’ve been making hummus as a protein / fibre snack lately to eat on whole wheat crackers or with vegetables.
I was never a huge fan, but I’ve fallen in love with its subtle flavour. The biggest challenge is to make the lot last more than one day. Makes just under 500g.
1 440g tin of chickpeas, drained and rinsed
1/2 – 1 clove of garlic, crushed
1 – 2 Tbsp tahini
1/4 tsp paprika
1/2 cup olive oil
the juice of 1 lemon (around 1/4 cup)
a little extra water if necessary
- Blend or process until smooth. If the mixture is too thick, add a little water to loosen it up or until you have your preferred consistency. Taste and season, adding more garlic, tahini or lemon juice as suits your tastes.
