Ingredients: 75 g sesame puree, 40 ml extra virgin olive oil, 2 cloves of garlic, 75 ml water, 900 g canned chickpeas, 40 ml freshly squeezed lemon juice, ½ tsp salt
Mix the sesame puree and the olive oil until a homogeneous mass is obtained. Drain the chickpeas and squeeze out the garlic cloves. Pour the water together with salt, lemon juice, chickpeas, garlic and sesame in a blender and mix until you have a smooth mixture. Our tip: The longer you mix the ingredients, the smoother the hummus will be. If you like, you can refine the hummus with more salt or lemon juice.
Our olive oil recommendation
For the hummus to become a beautiful, silky smooth, homogeneous cream you need a good, high quality olive oil. The three Morgenster olive oils with their special characteristics refine this oriental specialty. The Morgenster Extra Virgin Olive Oil is full-bodied and strong in taste and adds even more facets to hummus with its aromas of artichoke and mint. If you like it a little fruitier, Morgenster Don Carlo's Extra Virgin Olive Oil is the right choice. With additional nuances of spicy pepper and freshly cut grass, this olive oil completes the hummus once again. For an additional kick, Morgenster Lemon Enhanced Extra Virgin Olive Oil with its lemon flavours, obtained from an extract of lemon peel, further enhances the citrus character of the hummus.
