Home-Made Chummus with Hot Mushroom Sauce
Ingredients for Chummus:
1 cup raw chick peas soaked over night and cooked in water and salt for about an hour or until tender,
2 cans chick peas drained and rinsed cooked for about 10 minutes
Reserve water from cooked peas.
1 Tbs plain Tahini
1/4 cup olive oil (you can also use regular oil)
Juice of 1/2 lemon
2 tsp vinegar
1 garlic clove peeled & cut in 2
2 tsp salt
Directions for Chummus:
Place cooked peas in food processor. Add enough water to cover about 3/4 of chick peas, not all the way to cover the last layer of chick peas, make sure at least two “rows” of chick peas are not covered. Add the rest of the ingredients and process on medium speed for 2-3 minutes until creamy. Taste and add salt if needed. Chummus might look too liquidy, that is because you are working with hot chick peas, as soon as it cools down it will get harder.
Ingredients for Mushroom Sauce:
2 pints white mushrooms, sliced or quartered
1 big onion
1 tsp cumin
1/4 tsp black pepper
2 tsp salt
oil for frying
Directions for Mushroom Sauce:
Slice onion thinly and fry in oil until browned. Add mushrooms, sprinkle with salt and cook until liquid reduces, stirring occasionally. Add spices and cook for another 2-3 minutes.
Place Chummus in a big plate leaving a hole in middle, pour the mushroom sauce into the hole and serve hot. If you make it for Shabbos, make sure to leave Chummus at room temperature and place mushroom sauce covered with the rest of your warmed food.
