Speedy Hummus

I am not a fan of any Mediterranean food. Might it be a starter or main course or dessert. Nope. But I started to like hummus because it is light, flavorful, easy and best to serve with toasted pita bread. And it doesn't took me second try to master it.


2 clove garlic
1 can of chick peas, half the liquid reserved
1-2 tablespoon of lemon juice (or up to your taste)
1 tablespoon of tahini
Salt & black pepper to taste
1/4 cup of olive oil
Garnishing: Paprika powder, chick peas, olive oil & chopped parsley


1) In a food processor, chop the garlic. 

2) Pour chick peas & the liquid into blender, reserving about a tablespoon for garnish. 

3) Place lemon juice, tahini, salt & pepper in the food processor together with the processed chick peas. 

4) Pour the olive oil and blend until creamy and well mixed. 

5) Transfer the mixture to a medium serving bowl or individual serving small plate. Garnish.
