Hummus (Fer's recipe)

 A popular food throughout the Middle East. Recipe of my friend Fer, who likes to prepare it after the Aikido classes lol.
Very typical in countries such as Greece or Turkey.

Preparation time: 15 min.
Difficulty: Very Easy

200g of chickpeas
1 clove of garlic
2 tablespoons of tahini (sesame paste)
2 tablespoons of olive oil 
The juice of half lemon
1 teaspoons of salt
1/2 teaspoon of grind cumin
1/2 teaspoon of grind black pepper
1 teaspoon of paprika *(before serve it)


1. First of all, if the chickpeas are from a jar, put them under running water until they stop foaming.

2. Beat it all. To make it more creamy add a bit of water (if you have cooked the chickpeas, is better to use that water)

3. Before serve it (cold or tepid),  flavored it with olive oil and paprika.
Recommendation: Eat it with pita bread
