I made some hummus on Saturday. It is OK, but not... quite right.
50g sesame seeds, toasted (I think maybe I didn't toast them enough. Maybe try adding pre-made tahini next time)
400g tin of chickpeas (drained)
20ml olive oil
2 cloves garlic
juice of a lemon
about 100ml water
SHOULD have added: a pinch of salt.
and then I chopped the sesame seeds in the blender, mixed in the olive oil, added the rest and blended till it was smoothish. The texture is maybe a little gritty - could have added more water & blended for longer. To start with, the flavours were way off - the raw garlic and lemon juice was far too much. Today, the flavours have blended a bit so the whole thing tastes more pleasingly hummus-y, but still is lacking something. Maybe salt? Or maybe try dried chickpeas instead of tinned?
I still haven't made any beer fudge, but this is definitely on my to-do list. I originally came across the idea when I misread the words 'beer fridge' but the misreading sounded so delicious!
