This week we wanted to show you a recipe that you probably did not think your juicer could make... creamy hummus!
If you aren't familiar with hummus, it's a delicious spread, dip or savoury dish popular in the Middle East and around the world.
Paired with pita bread or veggie sticks, it's the perfect treat to whip up when unexpected guests drop over, or impress your friends the next time you all get together.
Creamy Homemade Hummus | MOD Appliances
1 can chickpeas (drained and rinsed)
1 TBSP good quality tahini
1 garlic, minced
Juice from 1 lemon
Pinch of salt and pepper
A drizzle of extra virgin olive oil and a sprinkle of paprika to finish (optional)
Before you start you'll need to make a couple small changes to your juicer;
Firstly remove the regular strainer and rotating wiper and replace it with the sorbet strainer;
Secondly you'll need to remove the orange pulp tab underneath (see video for reference);
Then simply mix all the ingredients in a bowl and slowly feed it through the wide-mouth chute of your juicer.
Serve in a dipping bowl, sprinkle over paprika and drizzle with some extra virgin olive oil. Serve alongside pita bread and veggie sticks.
It will keep in a tupperware container in the fridge for a couple of days and is great on toast, topped with avocado and fried eggs or your sandwich for lunch.
It also freezes really well! Any leftover hummus can be frozen into ice cubes and then transferred to a snaplock bag. Simply leave out for an hour so before use or defrost gently in the microwave.
