Humus Tahini Dip Recipe

Step 1

In a medium saucepan place the soaked chickpeas and cover them with water. Bring the water to a boil over high heat and vigorously cook the chickpeas for 10 minutes. Reduce the heat to low and simmer the chickpeas for 1« hours, or until they are tender (add more water if necessary).

Step 2

Drain the water from the chickpeas. Place them in a food processor (reserve 8 chickpeas for the garnish) and puree them until they are very smooth. Add some water if necessary.

Step 3

In a medium bowl, place the pureed chickpeas. Add the garlic, salt, pepper, tahini, and lemon juice. Mix the ingredients together so that they are well blended.

Step 4

Add the corn oil and mix it in well so that a smooth paste is formed.

Step 5

In a small serving bowl, place the humus. Smooth it down evenly with a knife. Pour the olive oil in the center. Sprinkle on the paprika and parsley. Garnish the dish with the reserved chickpeas.

Makes 1 cups.
