Make a conscious effort to eat well every day. That includes taking time to cook effectively.
1 15 oz. can chickpeas (Garbanzo beans)
1/4 cup sesame seeds
3 cloves of garlic
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil (plus extra to top with)
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil (optional)
A pinch of cumin
A pinch of paprika
Place the sesame seeds in a small pan and toss them until lightly coloured and toasted, about 1 minute. Reserve 1 tsp for garnish, and toss the rest into a blender. Pour over olive oil and sesame oil and blend until smooth.
Add the chickpeas, garlic, lime juice, and salt to the sesame paste and blend until smooth. Add water to loosen out the hummus to get your desired consistency.
To serve, decant the hummus into a bowl. Pour over a generous glug of olive oil, and sprinkle with cumin, paprika and reserved sesame seeds.
FREEZING INSTRUCTIONS: Hummus freezes very well; spoon into air-tight containers or zip-lock bags. To thaw, let it sit in the refrigerator for a few hours.
