Appetizers/ World Food/ Vegetables/ Vegan


Isn’t it almost happy hour now??? I think, at least somewhere in the world, it must be… 😉

What if we cooked a yummy humus with a well balanced taste of spice? Be carefull, it is so easy to cook and so good, that you might fall for it again and again…

So it’s true that very often we suggest Humus with blinis or grilled bread, but the best combination is probably with pita bread and oriental meatballs (beef or lamb and a lot of coriander and fresh mint!!). You can also eat it as the sauce for your veggie dips: carrots, cauliflower, cucumber, radish … Perfect for a healthy, tasty savory snack!

To cook this recipe, you will need a blender or a Thermomix. Also be aware that if you cook dry chick peas, you’ll have to start the recipe the day before you plan to eat it.

Now shall we? The recipe, Chef !

    Les convives et moi-même avons trouvé ce houmous trop compact… Je n’avais pas envie de le noyer dans l’huile d’olive… Est-ce qu’il aurait fallu garder l’eau des pois chiches et la mettre dans la préparation ?

      Alors il faut bien cuire les pois chiches si on prend des secs. Et ensuite ajuster la consistance avec du jus de citron et de l’huile en effet

    Bonjour Emma, je suis une grande amoureuse du houmous. Je n’en ai fait qu’une fois car c’était quand même super fastidieux d’enlever la peau des pois chiche. Mais apparemment ce n’est pas une étape obligatoire ? (dites oui, dites oui, dites oui ;)))
    Je fais le Tahine moi-même, c’est assez simple et comme ça se garde… j’en fais pour un moment. Merci de vos partages 🙂

      Bonjour Claire,

      Alors, on ne va pas se mentir, c’est mieux si on enlève la peau… Mais vous pouvez mixer avec. Avec un bon mixeur, ça ira nickel !
