veggie hummus


Kari and I have been rather obsessed with making our own hummus for ages. After a few failed attempts, and several trips to the grocery store – we finally found the key ingredient – tahineh!


1 can of chickpeas (796ml)
1.5 tbsp Tahineh
1/2 lemon, squeezed
3-4 leaves of fresh basil
1 tbsp fresh chives
and a few slices of any veggies you have in the fridge
(we used a bit of zucchini, red pepper, and broccoli)

salt and pepper to taste


Blend the chickpeas, tahineh, basil, chives, and lemon juice together in a food processor until smooth. Transfer into a bowl. Grill/cook veggies until soft and chop finely in the food processor. Combine with the chickpea mixture and season with salt and pepper. and done!

It’s so easy and SOOO yummy – you just need the right ingredients and you’re set!
