Hummus soup? Well sort of
I asked earlier in this forum, what should we do with all the water left from boiling your own chick peas.
I was cooking with my wife making hummus when it hit me.
Hey why don't we use all the ingredients of hummus and make a soup out of it.
I must say that I was pretty impressed with myself. My wife was skeptic but she liked it.
the result was a very satisfying soup that will need some tweaks.
Basically to the 3 liters of boiled chick peas water I added.
1 cup lemon juice
4 grated garlic
1/2 cup tahini
2 cup chick peas
1/2 tea spoon cumin
1/2 spoon mediterranean all spice
The result was a lemony satisfying soup.
What do you think, How would you tweak this soup to make it even better?
@Ttrockwood: Thanks for the link. Mine was a hot sop. His is a cold soup.
Will definitely try his version. But were back to square one with that recipe, what to do with 3 liters (+-3/4 gallon) of hummus water.
He uses just water not the water from the boiled chick peas. So I feel that I'm still original and still experimenting ;) lol lol lol
re: almond tree
I asked the store owner and he said the real name is "Lebanese 7 spices" even if there's 8 spices.
A ready mix made from the following
1/2 cup ground black pepper
1/2 cup ground cumin
1/2 cup paprika
1/4 cup ground coriander
1/4 cup ground cloves
4 teaspoons ground nutmeg
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
2 teaspoons ground cardamom
I cook a lot of chickpeas and I use the water as stock in many kinds of soup. I salt the chickpeas 30 min or so before they are done cooking and I find the liquid to be very tasty. Sometimes it even gels like chicken stock.
