Whole Chickpea Hummus (Musabaha)


I love a good hummus recipe.  Musabaha, popular throughout the Middle East, is unique in that a portion of the chickpeas are left whole for a more textured hummus.


In looking at recipes, many are served warm and the mixture is left thinner and almost porridge-like.



For this recipe, I left mine a bit thicker and served it with carrot sticks.  Either way, it’s sure to be tasty as an appetizer or as a light vegan meal.

Whole Chickpea Hummus (Musabaha)

Adapted slightly from Wholly Tasteful


Hummus

1 can chickpeas, drained

2-ish cups water

¼ teaspoon baking soda

2 tablespoons tahini

1 ½ tablespoons lemon juice

½ teaspoon ground cumin

2-3 tablespoons water


To Top

2 tablespoons olive oil

3 cloves garlic, sliced


Place the chickpeas in a small pan and cover with water.  Stir in the baking soda and simmer for 15-20 minutes or until very tender.  Drain.  Remove ½ cup of chickpeas and place the remaining chickpeas in the bowl of a food processor fitted with the blade.


Meanwhile, heat the oil in a small skillet or saucepan.  Add the garlic and cook for 1-2 minutes or until beginning to brown.  Set aside to cool slightly.


Pour half of the oil and garlic mixture in with the chickpeas along with the tahini, lemon juice, cumin, and 2 tablespoons water.  Process until smooth, adding more water if needed. 


Stir in the whole chickpeas.  To serve, top with the remaining oil and garlic, and fresh parsley.  Serve slightly with pita bread or veggies.
