Homos......Everybody knows Homos

Homos
You will need:

- 500 gms of chick peas soaked in lots of water overnight.
- 1 cup Tahini
- Juice of one big lemon
- 2 Tbsp. freshly ground cumin.
- 4 cloves of garlic, crushed and finely chopped.
- 2 Tbsp. olive oil.
- Salt, pepper, and Cayenne pepper to desired heat.
Method:
- Cook the chick peas in lots of boiling water till tender.
- Strain, keeping some of the liquid for dilution later on if the homos becomes too thick.
- With a vertical hand held blender, blend the chick peas till they become a purée.
- Transfer to a big bowl. If very thick, add some of the retained liquid. Not too much because the final product must not be drippy but rather thick.
- Add the Tahini, and the garlic blend well with blender.
- Add the oil, salt, pepper, cayenne, cumin and lemon juice to taste. Mix well
- Pour some oil on the suface, sprinkle some cumin, and drop a couple of leaves of parsley (if you have).
Ready. Cover with cling film, and refrigerate for at least 2 hours.
Enjoy
