Best. Ever. Hummus.
A bold declaration? Perhaps. But oh so true.
I consider myself a hummus aficionado. I’ve been around the block with hummus recipes, so believe me when I say this recipe is all kinds of awesome. The extra twists of miso and hot sauce make it magical! Don’t worry, it still tastes like traditional hummus, but with a boost of extra flavour and zing.
I used sprouted chickpea miso here, which makes this recipe soy-free. But I know it can be hard to find, so feel free to sub regular miso instead.
Best Ever Hummus
By Jen Walker
2 cups cooked chickpeas
2 garlic cloves, chopped
¼ cup tahini
2 tbsp chickpea miso (or regular miso)
4 tbsp lemon juice
2 tbsp water
4-8 drops of Tabasco sauce (or other hot sauce)
1 tbsp olive oil
¼ tsp salt, or to taste
paprika, for garnish
Place all ingredients except for salt into a food processor and blend until the hummus is coarsely puréed. Add in the salt gradually, stopping to taste as you go.
Add more water if needed to reach the consistency you like. Scoop into a bowl and drizzle with an extra splash of olive oil and paprika.
Keep in a sealed container in the fridge.
