|Homemade Hommus and Tortilla Chips|
Dried Thyme or other herbs
|Cutting the seasoned flat bread|
Brush tortillas with olive oil and sprinkle with some garlic salt and thyme, or flavouring of your choice.
Cut tortillas into wedges like a pizza.
Bake on a flat tray in the oven for 5 - 7 minutes or until they are beginning to go golden. They don't take long so keep an eye on them. As you can see I left mine a little bit long but they still tasted fine.
|Toasted Tortilla Chips|
We live in the Middle East for 3 years and Hommus was a part of life there. We ate out a lot and hommus was a regular appetizer on the table at every restaurant from a little 'hole in the wall' down a shabby street to high end dining in a 5 star hotel. The whole family loves it.
|Hommus made in a food processor is quick and easy|
600g can chick peas
3 cloves garlic
100ml olive oil
1 tsp ground cumin (optional)
2 tbsp tahini
juice of 1 lemon
Place all ingredients into a food processor or blender and process until smooth.
Serve with tortilla chips (above) or Turkish bread and fresh carrot sticks
The whole process to make the Hommus and Chips above can be achieved in about 15 minutes. It is a quick, easy and healthy snack.
