This hummus is easy to make your own, bursting with fresh coriander/cilantro and lemon flavours. The hummus can be served as a dip or as a sauce. Here I’ve simply made individual servings as starters (with some crackers on the side). Enjoy! (This is a low fodmap recipe.)
400 g canned (or soaked and cooked) chickpeas, drained
2 lemons, juice
150 ml loosely packed fresh coriander
1 tsp toasted sesame oil
A pinch of salt
(a few drops of maple syrup to bring out the flavour, optional or, agave, if you are not low fodmap)
Some olive oil, if needed, so create a softer texture. (to be added last, if needed)
½ of lemon per person
1 coriander leaf per person
(optional, some olive oil to drizzle over the dish)
1. Place all the ingredients for the hummus in a mixer and run until smooth.
2. Taste and add more coriander or lemon if needed.
3. Take half a lemon and cut off a small piece of the base so that it can steadily stand on a plate.
4. Cut of a thin, long strand along the top of the lemon (see photo) and keep it attached at one end. Make a knot on the lemon strand.
5. Using a small ice cream scoop, melon baller or similar, create little balls, flatten the base and place on top of the lemon.
6. Add a fresh leaf of coriander on top.
