One of the tastiest things of travelling is every country you go to, you have new dishes, new food to try out. But there is more; meeting so many people from different nationalities there are even more dishes to try, when you started cooking together. I travelled two weeks with Romi, an amazing girl from Israel. She was as a big food lover as I am. The thing we discovered was that we were eating way better when we cooked ourselves than when we went out to eat in Granada. Her favorite dish was hummus and I have to admit: I never had a better hummus than the one she made. So here is the recipe for Romi’s hummus:
- Chickpeas (for a variety don’t mash them, but leave them whole)
- Lime or lemon (Romi prefers lemon)
- Olive oil
Mix the tahini with the lemon. Add water if needed to make it a bit more liquid. Add salt, pepper, garlic and some olive oil and mix well.. Add the chickpeas. You don’t have to mash them. You can leave them in one peace. Stir around and let the chickpeas soak up the tahini sauce a bit. Serve cold.
