This homemade hummus is my ‘magical fix’ when guests show up unexpectedly.
I always have a can of chickpeas in the cupboard, some garlic and lemon.
I mix all the ingredients together in a blender and within seconds the humus dip is made.
I also keep a supply of baguette in the freezer for such occasions, however it is best to serve it with toasted pita bread, or as a bruschetta topping.
To mix my ingredients I use a Braun MultiQuick 3 Hand blender.
It is small, compact, quick & easy to use compared to the bigger blenders.
The components can be washed in the dishwasher and you can prepare several ingredients at the same time (there are several cups included).
