The Best Hummus Ever & My New Facebook Fan Page

So as promised, I am going to post the best hummus recipe ever! This post is going to be a short one because I didn't take any photos of this hummus. However, I have an exciting announcement to add to this post, so hopefully it won't be too disappointing. :) First, we'll start with the hummus recipe! The recipe was given to me from a friend and every single time I make the recipe many people bombard me asking for the recipe. My friend found the recipe in her cookbook from Rebar Modern Food, a restaurant in Victoria, British Columbia. I haven't had a chance to go to the restaurant, but I have heard many good things about it. So if you're in the area, it would likely be a great place to try out. Bombay Hummus Adapted from Rebar Modern Food Cookbook Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup oil

  • 1 inch piece of ginger, peeled and thinly sliced

  • 1 19oz can of chickpeas, rinsed and drained

  • 1/4 cup cashews, roasted

  • juice of 1 lime

  • 2 garlic coves

  • 1 tsp salt

  • 1 tsp cumin

  • 1 tsp coriander

  • 1/2 tsp cracked pepper

  • 1/4 tsp of cayenne (this make it pretty spicy - I usually use about 1/2 that amount)

  • pinch turmeric

  • pinch cinnamon

  • 2 tbsp chopped cilantro (I probably use closer to 1/4 cup because I LOVE cilantro, but go with what you like!!)

  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint

  1. Gently heat oil and ginger in a small pan. Let the ginger sizzle, but not brown. After 10 minutes, remove from heat and set aside to cool.

  2. Combine the ginger, oil, garlic, cashews, cilantro and mint in a food processor. Whirl until moderately smooth. Then add the juice of the lime and whirl until smooth and creamy. This may take a few minutes.

  3. Add the rest of the ingredients and whirl until mixture has reached desired smoothness. You may need to add more oil or water to the mixture to get it really smooth. Season to taste if additional seasoning is desired.
