Houmous {vegan – sans gluten}

houmous pois-chiches

Houmous mon amourc’est chez nous, un de nos mezzés froid favoris, oui je dis « un de nos » car il y a aussi le Moutabal auquel nous sommes tous accro j’avoue !!! Dégusté simplement comme ça avec du pain libanais, ou alors servi dans une pita avec des légumes frais ou rôtis et pleins d’herbesje deviens la plus heureuse des femmes (oui il ne me faut pas grand chose je sais). La cuisine moyen orientale est une cuisine qui me parle et que j’affectionne beaucoup (j’ai passé une courte partie de mes études en Israël), et quoi de mieux que l’houmous pour être son ambassadeur ?!

Creamy or grainy, the choice is yours,

personally I prefer it very creamy with pine nuts or pomegranate to contrast. I don't know what you think, but hummus is also (and especially) a perfect aperitif spread that will only take 5 minutes to prepare if you already have cooked chickpeas on hand. Anyway, to serve with everything and nothing because it's really too good ! Good and then it's not as if it only required six ingredients…ah well yes in fact !

      You can find tahine in organic groceries under the name sesame paste or in Lebanese groceries.
