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.


– 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


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.
