Dude, some chickpea'd in your hummus

[–]SadlyTuck 19 points20 points  (3 children)

I'm stealing this. I'll think of you when I get the laughs at dinner

[–]Addyct 19 points20 points  (1 child)

"why does R Kelly like Hummus so much?"

[–]VlK06eMBkNRo6iqf27pq 1 point2 points  (0 children)

make sure you get unblended hummus then, or carry some extra chickpeas in your pocket.

[–]fuzzyglock 12 points13 points  (2 children)

What’s the difference between a chickpea and a lentil?

I wouldn’t pay $100 to have a lentil on my face.

[–]HomelessPancakes 12 points13 points  (1 child)

What’s the difference between a chickpea and a GARBANZO BEAN? I wouldn’t pay $100 to have a GARBANZO BEAN on my face.

this one makes more sense to me..

What's the difference between a chickpea and a lentil. Shape, color taste the only thing that's the same is that they are both food.

[–]portcity2007 43 points44 points  (3 children)

God I love Hummus and warm flatbread. Throw in tabouli and nirvana.

[–]shittingjacket 60 points61 points  (1 child)

Nothing complements middle eastern food like 90’s alternative.

[–]shomali11[S] 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Absolutely right!

[–]breadhead4 132 points133 points  (11 children)

Anyone else read this as: "[I Ate] Humans" in passing?

[–]Admiral_Furskin 22 points23 points  (0 children)

Only reason I clicked the link.

[–]banditkeithwork 6 points7 points  (1 child)

i sure did, and boy was i confused by the photo

[–]SafetyDanceInMyPants 6 points7 points  (0 children)

Well, puréed, of course. That's the only way to eat them.

[–]IEatBeautifulVaginas 1 point2 points  (1 child)

Nothing wrong with eating out humans...

[–]Mange-Tout 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Bingo. Stupid dyslexia.

[–]denroxyou 31 points32 points  (4 children)

That looks delicious.

[–]JMccovery 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I love me some Roasted Red Pepper hummus.

[–]simply_me_123 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Where was this? NYC?

[–]shomali11[S] 6 points7 points  (0 children)


[–]piyokochan 8 points9 points  (0 children)

Nice plating!

[–]heyitslongdude 14 points15 points  (3 children)

How did you do that presentation?

[–]thisonewasnotaken 16 points17 points  (2 children)

You use a spoon to create a well in the middle. Scoop out some and then use the convex end to smooth out the walls. Add olive oil and raw chick peas to the middle, a touch of sumac around the sides, and it’s ready to serve.

[–]goal2004 4 points5 points  (0 children)

Scoop out some

No need to scoop! Just push the back of a spoon down and in a circular motion around the center while overlapping it, and you'll get the well.

[–]quantumofgalaxy 3 points4 points  (2 children)

What's the red powder? Paprika?

[–]shomali11[S] 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Paprika :)

[–]thisonewasnotaken 7 points8 points  (0 children)

Try it with sumac next time

[–]fillibustra 3 points4 points  (7 children)

I never get my hummus this finely ground. Any tips?

[–]plzsendn00ds 26 points27 points  (1 child)

Take the little condoms off of the chick peas before blending

[–]makemyday007 12 points13 points  (0 children)

But then there will be more baby chick peas.

[–]finsareluminous 2 points3 points  (0 children)

  1. Try to get as much of the chickpeas skins off before blending.

  2. Pre-blend the chickpeas in a small amount of the cooking water to a smooth paste, before adding the tahini.

[–]InelegantQuip 2 points3 points  (1 child)

[–]mtfx 0 points1 point  (0 children)

upvotes for this. I have been using this recipe for a while, and it makes a substantial difference.

[–]portcity2007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We add a tiny bit of water and lemon juice while blending. Just a little though you don't want to dilute the rich taste. My husband will also cook the chickpeas until warm and this helps, too. It softens them.

[–]Cat-ionic 2 points3 points  (3 children)

Yum I want hummus now lol

[–]bundlebundle 16 points17 points  (0 children)

MORE LIKE YUMMUS AMIRITE. Ok thats enough internet for now.

[–]Seoulja4life 2 points3 points  (1 child)

A restaurant nearby my place in Seattle serves hummus in the same presentation and charges 10 bucks with the bread.

[–]LinFTW 0 points1 point  (0 children)

What restaurant is this in Seattle (I live here too)? I'm going to guess it's Mamnoon. If you like the hummus I suggest going for lunch instead, it's still 6 bucks for hummus but its much cheaper overall. That place is crazy overpriced though.

[–]silver81659 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I thought it said humans😖

[–]huhwhat90[🍰] 3 points4 points  (4 children)

That's some fine looking hummus.

[–]shomali11[S] 1 point2 points  (3 children)

Tastes better

[–]portcity2007 4 points5 points  (2 children)

Do you like it more bean or tahini tasting? My husband likes the beans more, me the tahini. I also like lemon and garlic in it. I like a little sumac sprinkled, too.

[–]zyzzs 2 points3 points  (1 child)

+1 for tahini.

Very light on the paprika (I don’t like spice), but sumac is also very good!

[–]portcity2007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

We use paprika, too! We have found this delicious Lebanese evoo at a little Asian market that actually tastes like it did when we were growing up. It makes all the difference. Most in the US are watered down and rancid. Sorry, I guess I'm just passionate about ME cuisine!

[–]dizzykakes 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Was it good?

[–]cheer1ka 0 points1 point  (1 child)

Buhhhh omg that looks incredible

[–]shomali11[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tastes better :)

[–]CalmJay 0 points1 point  (1 child)

That looks amazing

[–]shomali11[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Tastes better :)

[–]tobihanshi 0 points1 point  (0 children)

It looks like a guy on a rock being praised...

[–]ChoppingOnionsForYou 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That looks very like the hummus at The Monkey Bar in Berlin. That, too, was some great hummus! Hope you enjoyed.

[–]happymakkie 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I miss read and thought you said humans

[–]huxdogs 0 points1 point  (0 children)

That looks amazing

[–]beef_rainbows 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Put pomegranate kernels in your hummus now.

[–]quyax 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Looks delicious. Hummus is one of the few dishes in the world that an absolute novice cook can make extremely well while adding their own unique twist to the basic recipe.

[–]Bornstellar- 0 points1 point  (2 children)

Do you use a cook book when you cook?

[–]WeAreTheBoys 5 points6 points  (1 child)

Hummus is one of the easiest things you can possibly make. Chickpeas + tahini + whatever flavors you like (li like it simple, lemon juice, salt pepper, and oil but the sky is the limit). Throw it all in a food processor and blend it up. Done.

[–]Roupert2 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I disagree. I tried several recipes before I found the one to my taste. Ratios matter.

[–]poke_pies 0 points1 point  (4 children)

Never had hummus before. Are those raw egg yolks?

[–]balloonsforhandsguy 7 points8 points  (1 child)

No they are chickpeas, the main ingredient in hummus. It tastes similar to bean dip.

[–]poke_pies 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Cool thanks! I’ll have to try it soon.

[–]bestiality420 0 points1 point  (0 children)

sesame paste, chickpeas

[–]Natsukashii 0 points1 point  (0 children)

There's an olive oil drizzle on top.

[–]tallperson117 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I first read that as "Humans". The color of the hummus didn't make it better.

[–]Sabot15 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Next will be, "[I Ate] Water."

[–]Postmanpat1990 -2 points-1 points  (0 children)

Hummus‘ve been hungry

[–]nir731 -2 points-1 points  (3 children)

This is the only thing I eat. (I'm Israeli)

[–]snickers_snickers 0 points1 point  (2 children)

What a shame, you guys have so many amazing options.

[–]nir731 -1 points0 points  (1 child)

Well it's a joke. If I eat outside I may eat shawarma, falafel, etc. But I eat a LOT of hummus.

[–]portcity2007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

So do we! This thread is making me so hungry! This week I'm making tabouli, falafel, with tahini sauce on warm flat bread! Yum. American food is so plastic after eating rich ME cuisine! I just made mjadra and it's so good the next day cold with a little evoo and bread. We also eat a little labne with it on the side. Wish someone would start a subreddit for ME cuisine!

[–]hanahu -1 points0 points  (0 children)


[–]mch84 -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Needs more paprika. Ever try smoked paprika? So good!

[–]Royaltott -1 points0 points  (0 children)

I have mild dyslexia and read “I ate humans” lol.

[–]Odds-Bodkins -1 points0 points  (0 children)

Ugh, I commented like an hour ago saying I really want baba ganoush, and now this gets posted my craving is even worse.

guess I better get my fat ass off the couch and down to the store.

[–]khullen -5 points-4 points  (4 children)

Don't tell me you ate this with a fork..

[–]Dgr8est 5 points6 points  (3 children)

If it’s great hummus you can eat it with a fork. Maybe just wipe it clean with a quarter of a pita when you’re done, it’s rude not to wipe a hummus plate clean.. source - am Israeli

[–]khullen 0 points1 point  (0 children)

I absolutely love hummus, but I too eat it with pita, wether bread or chips. Amazing stuff.

[–]Gian_Luck_Pickerd 0 points1 point  (0 children)

And if you wipe it really well, you don't even need to wash it

[–]portcity2007 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Yep, can confirm.
