It’s no secret I love Masterchef… I don’t watch a lot of television (too many books in the world, not enough time) but last season, I was hooked. I dominated the remote every day at 7.30pm and woe betide anyone who came near.
This year is no different, and just about everything shown in the masterclasses make me immediately hungry. This hommus recipe, and the one for raw vegetable salad actually had me moaning at the television… I needed to eat them immediately, if not sooner. And boy, when I made them, I thought my head was going to explode. They were painfully good.
Without further ado, here is Gary’s recipe for Masterchef hummus.
Masterchef Hummus Recipe
- 400g can chickpeas
- 1/2 garlic clove, bruised
- 1 tablespoon organic tahini
- pinch mild paprika
- 1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
- 1 lemon, juiced with 1/2 the zest finely grated
- 1/2 teaspoon salt (or to taste)
Blend, baby! You may have to add a little water. You can use the blender or a food processor, though I find the food processor easier.
The lemon. It’s the lemon that makes this shit so good. I make it alllll the time.
