Dave Hall’s Spicy Lime Hummus

Spicy Lime Hummus

Backstory

Dave Hall, a high school teammate and friend, has a great facebook Group called Hummus Scarfers. As we all know, I love hummus, specially the spicy kind! So when He posted it, I asked him if I could publish it here in the cookbook. So here goes!

When asked if he would allow me to publish, here was his reply:

Hey man! I have a Ninja blender. I usually make batches with:

  • 5 cans of garbanzo beans.
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sesame tahini(to taste)
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt Jalapeño or habanero to taste(fresh)
  • 5 cloves garlic
  • 2 bunches cilantro
  • Juice 8 limes

Put all liquid and veggies first, with tahini salt garlic etc. Blend for several minutes on high. Add beans in kinda gradually, let blend until you have a nice smooth consistency.

Getting the ingredients together…

My take on Dave’s Recipe

So I am going to scale Dave’s Recipe down a bit to 2 cans of beans, and scaling all the other ingredients proportionately. I am also going to use roasted garlic and add air fried Italian Long Hot Pepper (my personal favorites).

I am also going to blend them in a Cuisinart Food Processor, as I do not own a blender anymore.

  • 2 cans of garbanzo beans.
  • 1 1/4 cups water
  • 1/2 cup sesame tahini(to taste)
  • 1/3 cup avocado oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt

The spicy jalapeno hummus is a must for any vegan diet, and this one is very basic and quick.

Humble Beginnings

This recipe starts with one I found on https://simpleveganblog.com/hummus/ – Simple Vegan Blog. It is the base, with no alterations:

  • 1 can of chic peas (I like Rienzi as it is light with salt)
  • 2-4 clove fresh garlic rough chop
  • Juice of 1/2 lemon or 1oz of lemon juice
  • 1 tbs of Tahini
  • 1/2 tbs of salt – add salt after tasting it as many canned chic peas have a lot of sodium
  • ½ teaspoon cumin
  • ½ cup of cooking broth or water at room temperature (125 milliliters)
  • Extra virgin olive oil (optional)
  • 1 tablespoon paprika (optional)

I place all the ingredients in the food processor. Pulse at first to mix the ingredients well, and then put on high for about 2 minutes or until smooooooth.
