Perfecting Childhood Nostalgia
Hummus was a staple in my childhood diet and I’m grateful for it even today. It’s true – you could say I was raised on hummus! I was fortunate to grow up in southwest Sydney in an area with a large Turkish community. This meant I was exposed to the wonderful cuisine from an early age. Delicious salads like Tabbouleh were common and we often would bring home hummus for our favorite snack – toasted Turkish bread! The intense flavors of traditional hummus have always enticed and excited me.
In the UK, hummus isn’t as popular as it is in Australia. Although it’s easy to find in the supermarket, it is almost watery in both texture and taste, not like the stuff from back home at all! Thankfully, I have my own easy hummus recipe to get me by! This recipe is full of rich flavours, and free from preservatives and additives like the hummus you find in store.
My recipe is made using ingredients that are more traditional (almost), which are essential to provide that intense, full flavour hummus is known for.
For this recipe, I do use tinned chickpeas as I find they don’t have too much of a negative impact on the flavour. And given this recipe is meant to be easy? Tinned chickpeas is the way to go. However, it is essential to use full-fat tahini. I’ve tried using the low-fat options, and they simply don’t work.
I love serving this recipe alongside whipped feta, as the two dips work tremendously well together, and also my gluten-free tabbouleh. Both have indulgent Mediterranean flavours, and the zesty flavours of the whipped feta compliment the nuttiness of this dip perfectly.
