My next recipe was one of my favorite mom recipes.  Back in Bulgaria you can find hummus only at the big supermarkets, so I was more than curious to learn how to make it myself. Try it on a toasted bread and fresh squeezed lemon.

Ingredients:

– 1 can chickpea

– 2-3 tablespoons of the liquid from the can

– half of whole (up to your taste) squeezed lemon

– 2 tbsp tahini

– 1 clove of garlic

–  salt to season

– 1/2 cup olive oil  and extra for drizzle

Preparation:

Drain chickpeas from the liquid in the can, and set the liquid aside. Combine remaining ingredients in blender or food processor. Add the liquid from chickpeas. Blend for 3-5 minutes on low level until thoroughly mixed and smooth. Place in serving bowl, and create a shallow well in the center of the hummus. Add a small amount (1-2 tablespoons) of olive oil in the well. Make it spicy with a pinch of cayenne pepper on the top.
