When my wife and I moved in together, many years ago, there were many foods I discovered that I liked that I either didn't think I did or didn't know existed, she introduced me to a world of flavours! Hummus was one of them. I'd never tried it before and discovered I loved it.
To start with we only really used it as a dip, with raw peppers or tortilla crisps (or chips for the Americans). Then I started using it in sandwiches and although you receive a certain amount of stick for having hummus in you sandwiches on a building site, it was worth it to break the monotony of ham or cheese (or ham and cheese if we were feeling flush that week).
But now I'd like to make my own, rather than spending 90p on a little pot of the stuff and with chickpeas only 39p a tin from Lidl it makes it worth making at home. My wife also has a project making some at school for their Greece project next term and needs an easy recipe for the children to make.
The only trouble is I could do with decent recipe, it can't contain peanut butter (due to the school not allowing it) so Tahini is the order of the day and so far the batches I've made have been nice but the garlic is a little over powering.
Anyone else like hummus?
Any tips or recipes from anyone would be gratefully received.
