What’s your favorite spread or dip? This is a question I hear very often on social media. The answer is an evergreen, I am sure all of you have in your fridge. It’s hummus in all variations.
The ingredients of hummus are almost always: Chickpeas, salt, pepper, lemon juice, olive oil. And of course, you can add further ingredients to your own taste. Dried or frozen spices are perfect to spice up your hummus to your own taste.
This hummus with parsley is perfect to spread on a good slice of bread, or as a dip with vegetables or other crackers. Together with some olives, pickled tomatoes, garden radishes, sprouts, or some cress you have a nice snack on your plate.
This hummus with parsley is creamy and spicy. If you want to reduce the spice just use less salt or pepper. Lemon juice is a must and raises the taste of chickpeas and the parsley.
The hummus is ready to eat it right away or it can be stored in the fridge in an airtight container for a week. The hummus can also be stored in the freezer and you take it out whenever your stomach is grumbling.
