My wife showed me how to make humus. She is extremely camera shy, so there aren’t any photos of her, but take my word for it, she’s just as cute as a bug’s ass. It was nice of her to let me take any pictures at all; she doesn’t get the whole taking photographs of what you eat thing.
“Nobody cares,” she says. “Why do you do that? You don’t even know how to cook. Besides, food is for eating, not for photographing. Everybody knows what I am having for dinner before I do, because you always post it. What’s wrong with you?”
I don’t know. She’s probably right (she usualy is). Want to see some pictures of garbanzo beans in a blender?
- 1 can garbanzo beans
- 2 heaping spoonfuls of Tahini
- 1-2 cloves crushed garlic
- juice from 1 lemon
- salt to taste
- water to suit
Dump a can of garbanzos into the blender. Add enough water to not quite cover the beans, Less is better than too much – you can add more later if you need to. Blend a bit. Use a rubber spatula to stir up any uncrushed garbanzos from the bottom and sides of blender. Add crushed garlic cloves, a pinch of salt the juice from one lemon, and 2 heaping spoonfuls of tahini. Blend to a smooth paste. Taste to see if you need more salt, garlic or lemon juice. Add a little water if needed to adjust the consistency to your taste. Blend some more and that is all there is to it!
