Curejoy Expert Dipti Mothay Explains:
There are many benefits of making homemade hummus, firstly it tastes better, it is fresher, has no preservatives, and it is also way cheaper compared to the ones being sold in the market.
Coconut Hummus Recipe:
– 1 can ( 16 oz) chickpeas (drained and washed )
– 3-4 pods garlic
– 4 tbsp sesame seeds (or 2 tbsp tahini paste)
– 1/2 cup coconut milk
– 2 tbsp olive oil (extra virgin )
– 2 tbsp lemon juice
– 1/2 tsp salt
– 1 tsp pepper
– 1 tsp honey
Step 1: Soak the chickpeas overnight.
Step 2: Cook the chickpeas.
The next day drain the chickpeas and rinse in water at least three times before using. This will minimize the gassy effect they tend to produce. Add 6 1/2 cups water to the pot and bring the beans to a boil. Continue to cook, over medium-high to high heat for anywhere from 20 – 40 minutes depending on freshness. When the beans are tender enough to break up easily, but not turn to mush when pinched between your thumb and finger they are done. Drain the cooking liquid.
Step 3: Blend.
Just blend together all the ingredients mentioned above, till you get a smooth and creamy texture.
Step 4: Allow the hummus to rest for 30 minutes.
Transfer the hummus to a bowl and cover the surface with plastic wrap so that you can avoid the air from getting in-between the hummus and the plastic wrap. Let the hummus sit for 30 minutes at room temperature, during this time the hummus will thicken slightly.
Step 5: When you are ready to serve up your hummus
You can make your homemade hummus creamier by adding coconut milk. Just add half cup and you get the creamiest hummus ever. Enjoy as a spread or dip with veggies or chips.
