Hovik Keuchkerian's Humus Recipe



You can either obtain the chickpeas already boiled and bottled in water and salt, or do the boiling yourself.

  1. Remove most of the water (leave about a half).
  2. Drop contents on a pan.
  3. Squeeze out the lemon.
  4. Grind the chickpeas while stirring gently. You will obtain a brown paste.
  5. Drop a cup of tahine and the lemon juice.
  6. Drop salt if there wasn't enough in the bottle (optional).
  7. Drop the clove of garlic (optional).
  8. Keep grinding and stirring.
  9. If too stiff pour a few drops of water and grind.
  10. Serve with olive oil and cumin.
