Recipe's preparation

  1. Place garlic into TM bowl and chop for 3 seconds on speed 7. Scrape down.

    Add olive oil and sauté for 1 minute at 100ºC on speed 1.

    Add harissa and sauté for 1 minute at 100ºC on speed 1.

    Add chickpeas, 2 tbsp liquid and lime juice. Chop for 1 minute, slowly move from
    speed 1 to 7 so that mixture does not fly around bowl. 

    Add tahini and salt and blend.

    To have a smooth hommus, slowly blend from speed 1 to speed 7 until smooth.

    Adjust flavour with more lime juice and salt.

    Harissa Method
    Cover the chillies in boiling water and leave to soak for1 hour then strain off water.



    Place cumin seeds into TM bowl and dry roast for 4 minutes at 100ºC on speed 1.
    Let cool and pulverize for a few seconds on speed 9.

    Add remaining ingredients and slowly increase to speed 6 to form a paste.

    You may have to scrape down a few times and chop again.

    Store in refrigerator in a clean jar. Cover with a thin layer of olive oil to keep longer. 





You can use lemon instead of lime. Water thickens hommus and citrus juice thins it to your desired consistency. Traditional hommus is made with peeled chickpeas (can you believe that!), so it is smooth (that’s before thermomix!).

For the Harissa you can use fresh chillies, use in small amounts as it is very strong.

    I made this over weekend and I'm loving the flavour!! I had fresh chillis and used 10 to make the Harissa (just guessed)  - it was on the hot side... But once mixed with hummus just delicious!!
