Serves: ~2 cups
Time: 10 minutes
2 cups cooked chickpeas or 1 (15 ounce) can chickpeas, rinsed and drained
1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
1/4 cup raw tahini
1 clove garlic, chopped
2 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 tbsp. water
1 tsp. turmeric powder
1/2 tsp. cumin powder
Salt & pepper to taste
1 cup buckwheat flour
2 tbsp. tapioca flour
1/2 tsp. salt
3 tbsp. water + more 1 tbsp. at a time as needed
To prepare your beans - Add your dried chickpeas to a bowl and cover with 2 -3 inches of water. Soak overnight, 8 - 12 hours. Rinse and drain the chickpeas. Add to sauce pot and cover with water. Bring to boil over medium-high heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 30 - 40 minutes, until tender. Once ready, drain the water and set aside.
To make the hummus - Place all ingredients in a food processor (or blender) and mix on medium-high speed until smooth and creamy, 1 - 2 minutes. Stop and scrape down the sides if needed. Add more water or olive oil slowly to adjust the consistency.
Taste and adjust seasoning to your preferences.
To make the chapati - To make the chapati add all ingredients to a mixing bowl. Add flour to your hands to prevent the mixture from sticking; mix well, forming a dough. Adjust the consistency with more flour or liquid as needed.
Sprinkle flour onto a clean, dry surface and press the dough into small circles(ish) formations.
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil if desired. When hot, add your chapati dough and cook 3-5 minutes, flipping half way through, until both sides are golden brown.
To serve- Garnish your bowl of hummus with olive oil, fresh herbs, and sesame seeds. Serve with your gluten-free chapati & fresh veggie sticks.
Enjoy or store hummus in the fridge for 2 - 3 days.
