Houmous

Looks like the Facebook Group Kahn Recipes is about to be closed down, so I’ll move them all here.

First and foremost: Houmous

There are 3 grades of houmous: civilian, industrial and weapons grade. It depends on the ratio of chick peas to tehina: 2, 1, 0 respectively. Make civilian if your friends are weencore.

• 1 jar tehina
• 2 tins chick peas, drained and rinsed (or 1 for industrial, 0 for weapons grade)
• a few cloves of garlic, crushed
• juice of one lemon
• salt
• water

Put the ingredients in a food processor and blend. Keep adding water. Mixture will go thick. Keep adding water until it thins to the right consistency. You may need to add more salt or lemon juice to correct the flavour. Garnish with flat leaf parsley, olives, chilies etc (optional). Shake over paprika and/or black pepper and cover with a generous layer of extra virgin olive oil.

Incidentally weapons grade houmous is known as tehina.
