Walnut Hummus

Walnut Hummus

Things are pretty easy in the east I must say. Boiled beans, boiled chickpeas, washed and packed salad leaves, cut vegetables you name it and its available in the super markets to make life faster and easier in the kitchen. Even hummus can be picked up off the shelf… For those who do want to make it at home. Here’s  a recipe with a twist that is hummus made using Walnuts…after all we are in the walnut week aren’t we? 🙂 Btw to make it even more healthy you can use sprouted boiled chickpeas in place of normal chickpea!

Walnuts – 1/2 cup

Chickpea (chana) – 250 gms (boiled and drained)

Lemon juice – of 1 number

Garlic cloves – 2 nos

Salt and pepper to taste

Olive Oil – 2 tbsp

Parsley – 1 tbsp finely chopped

Chili powder – 1/2 tsp (optional)

  1. Mix all the ingredients except Parsley and chili powder and blend it to a smooth consistency.
  2. Add water if required
  3. Garnish with a sprinkle of chili powder, 1/2 tsp oil and few boiled chickpeas.
  4. Serve with bread / pita / vegetable cuts
