Nut Free Hummus Cooked by Annie’s Supper Club This is my own recipe and it does NOT include tahini - that is because we have customers with nut allergies so, like so much of what we do, we make it accessible for all. Obviously you could add some if you prefer the taste. I use my Vitamix , but a liquidizer is fine.
Ingredients
  • 1 can of chickpeas - drained & rinsed
  • 40ml fresh lemon juice
  • 65ml good quality olive oil
  • 1tsp ground cumin
  • ¼tsp ground cayenne
  • 1 clove of garlic, minced and pasted
  • ½ tsp sea salt
  • Fresh parsley & olive oil to garnish (optional)
  • Place 30ml of the lemon juice and the olive oil in the Vitamix container. Add the cumin, cayenne, salt and garlic. Add the drained chickpeas.
Instructions
  1. Place 30ml of the lemon juice and the olive oil in the Vitamix container. Add the cumin, cayenne, salt and garlic. Add the drained chickpeas.
  2. Set the dial to Variable 1 then turn the Vitamix on and slowly increase the speed to 10.
  3. If you want a really smooth hummus you can use High but I tend to keep the speed on 10 as I don't want a puree but a hummus with a bit of character. Use the tamper if necessary to push the ingredients down.
  4. Turn the machine off and taste - add the rest of the lemon juice and adjust the seasoning to suit your tastes.
  5. To serve I like to sprinkle with fresh, finely chopped parsley and a drizzle of olive oil.
