Takes 10 Minutes! – When it is to Hot to Cook Make Hummus

Too Hot to Cook!
Too Hot to Cook!
It has been the never ending summer of 2016 with temperatures soaring in Windsor On, so we have been using the BBQ a lot but sometimes it is just too hot to do even that! With the humidex prediction for 40 today no cooking today so hummus is on the menu.  Great for a snack with drinks, added as a filling for pita or wrap and as a quick take along for a pot luck, I have found hummus to be so versatile. It is a good source of protein and super easy to make much better then store bought and you can choose any add ins to vary the flavours.
Simply take a can of chick peas drain and rinse well. Put into a bowl and add 2 tablespoons of tahini or peanut butter, some (virgin) olive oil, a couple of cloves of chopped garlic and some freshly squeezed lemon to taste, plus some freshly ground black pepper. A little salt added brings out the flavour. You can do this with a fork if you are strong -it will be chunky as opposed to smooth, but the easiest way is to use a hand held blender (less waste) and puree to the consistency you prefer by adding more water, or oil. Garnish with any fresh herbs on hand and serve with crackers, pita bread and a salad.
