Tahini and hummus are known as healthy dips and are very popular. They can be used in a variety of ways such as dips for veggie sticks and a spread on toast, but they can also be used to cook food, to add some nutty flavor.
Here are recipes for homemade tahini and hummus
1. Tahini Recipe
- 200 g sesame seeds toasted
- 1 tbs extra virgin olive oil
Lightly toast sesame seeds on a low heat until golden brown, remove from heat and let cool.
Put the seeds in a food processor and process for 1 minute. Add the olive oil and keep mixing for another 2 – 3 minutes until smooth. You will need to stop processing occasionally to scrape down the sides of the food processor bowl.
Transfer the tahini to a glass jar, cover it with a lid and keep it in the refrigerator.
2. Hummus Recipe
Rinse the chickpeas and place in a medium-sized bowl. Add filtered water and rub the chickpeas to peel. Remove the skins, drain the chickpeas and transfer to a food processor. Add the tahini, lemon juice, garlic, salt, and cumin and process for 5 minutes until the mixture is smooth.
Gradually add oil and water and mix for another 2 minutes until the mixture becomes smooth.
