Hummus is a perfect anchor to this meal.
My hummus is a little different because I don't use tahini, typically a main ingredient of the dish. I don't care for the taste of tahini, to me it has a bitter undertone. I substitute hemp hearts and sunflower seeds.
Half cup each of hemp hearts and sunflower seeds, processed to a fine crumble.
Add a 14oz can of drained and rinsed chickpeas AND
1 clove garlic
Quarter cup of fresh lemon juice
Quarter cup of olive oil
Dash of ground cumin
Further process all until you reach a lovely smooth consistency.
Tip into a bowl, swirl the top with a spoon, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with paprika.
Leave to sit at room temperature please, it's much nicer that way.
I made an olive flatbread to pair with the hummus, using Polestar Hearth's delicious pizza dough.
HERE is the recipe.
