i either buy the pre char grilled ones (from the deli) if i havnt got a lot of time, or i roast the whole peppers on the BBQ, until they are black, put them in cold water & then the skin comes off really easy!

this recipe is pretty easy to make, its the skinning of the peppers that takes the time [:p]

Hi Fred, I suspect you dont get it ready made in Turkey because its so easy to make yourself.

You can use dried chick peas but these have to be soaked over night so its easier and quicker to use tinned chick peas.

1 tin chick peas
1 or 2 cloves garlic
juice of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons tahini (try Sainsburys)

whizz in food processor and voila. If youre on a diet you can leave out the oil and add water, its just as good but a bit drier.

Olive oil in humus

For me the addition of a "generous" amount of good "raw, homemade" olive oil definitely is the magic ingredient.

"Homemade" olive oil

My sister has a place in greece and regularly brings back some "village" pressed olive oil for me. It's so good one can easily sip the stuff neat. Really!

Ingredients
Chickpeas bottled in salt and water
Tahine
One lemon
Olive oil
Cumin
Salt (optional)
Clove of garlic (optional)
Preparation
You can either obtain the chickpeas already boiled and bottled in water and salt, or do the boiling yourself.
Remove most of the water (leave about a half).
Drop contents on a pan.
Squeeze out the lemon.
Grind the chickpeas while stirring gently. You will obtain a brown paste.
Drop a cup of tahine and the lemon juice.
Drop salt if there wasn't enough in the bottle (optional).
Drop the clove of garlic (optional).
Keep grinding and stirring.
If too stiff pour a few drops of water and grind.
Serve with olive oil and cumin.

you can buy humus everywhere..but home made is best. dont loosen the mix with water..it will lose some of the flavour..best to use olive oil(or sunflower) and lemon juice. i also add cumin to the puree as well as decorate with it.
chick peas freeze well .also you can get chick pea flour with which to make humus quickly..lots of restaurants use it but its not quite the same..tho not bad for a quick fix. ummm im hungry now
