Over Memorial Day weekend I went down the Cape to my friend Melis’ parent’s house. As always, there was a fantastic spread of food but the thing that stood out the most was the lemon hummus that Melis’ relative Mark had made from scratch. I think I hovered over the dish the entire afternoon dipping every piece of produce in it After gushing over the delicious hummus, Mark was so kind to give me his recipe!
Here’s what you need:
• 19 oz. of chickpeas
• 4 lemons, juiced
• 6 cloves of garlic
• 1/4 cup tahini
• salt to taste
• 1/4 cup of olive oil to smooth (I actually forgot to put the olive oil in, because I’m brilliant and get distracted like a 3 year old, but it still tasted great!)
Here’s what you do:
The directions are very simple… Just blend all of the ingredients together in a food processor until smooth!
With the refreshing citrus hints from the lemons this is the perfect appetizer to bring to a Summer party or if you’re entertaining at home. I mean, we already know it’s a huge hit
Thanks for the recipe Mark! It’s definitely a keeper!
(Also, pardon the “ghost” in my pictures… looks like some steam or something is on my lens? Not having the best of luck with technology this past week!)
