A few guests are coming over to your house unannounced. How do you entertain them? What do you cook? A simple hummus recipe might do the trick. A Harissa-infused Olive Oil and White Bean Hummus can be handy and delicious if you are in a hurry—it only takes five minutes to prepare. Harissa is a vibrant, flavorful Tunisian chili paste and if infused in olive oil, it can add more layers to a dish. A simple hummus on its own might not wow your guests too much but Harissa, white bean, and Texas olive oil can elevate a hummus and make it the perfect Mediterranean snack or emergency appetizer. You can serve it at dinner parties or eat it for lunch.
The recipe is easy, quick, healthy, and vibrant. Here’s how you can make it.
Here are all the ingredients you will need.
- A large, minced clove of garlic
- 1 19-ounce can of dried cannellini beans.
- 1/4 cup of tahini
- ¼ cup of lemon juice
- ½ teaspoon of ground coriander
- ¼ cup of Harissa Infused Texas Olive Oil
- Salt according to taste
Follow these simple steps and you can serve up a bowl of hummus in five minutes flat. You will need tablespoons, a bowl, and a food processor.
First, prepare and gather all the ingredients you will need. Squeeze out the lemon juice and measure out the recommended amount of tahini and ground coriander. Pour out the can of cannellini beans and rinse and dry them in a bowl. Next, peel the garlic and mince it.
Finally, pour out a ¼ cup of Harissa-infused Texas olive oil. Now line up all the ingredients and prepare for step 2.
Mix the minced garlic, ground coriander, tahini, and lemon juice and pour the mixture into a food processor. Turn on the food processor and puree the mixture. As the mixture turns into a paste, slowly add in the Harrisa-infused Texas olive oil while the food processor’s motor is still running.
You should keep the food processor running at a high speed. The end goal is to have a very smooth paste. If the mixture looks chunky, you will need water to get the right consistency.
As the motor is running, pour in water two tablespoons at a time. Keep an eye on the paste’s texture each time. You don’t want it to get too chunky or too runny. When you reach the desired consistency, stop pouring the water.
A crucial stage is seasoning. Make sure to pour in a pinch or two of salt in the mixture, the amount poured should be according to taste. To mix the salt in with the ingredients, run the food processor again briefly.
The last step in the recipe is to serve the hummus. Pour out the hummus into a bowl and serve with chips, pita bread, or vegetables. Use a drizzle of Harissa-infused olive oil on top for an added flair.
There you have it; in just five minutes you can make and serve hummus. All you need to do is to stock up on the ingredients in your pantry.
A jar of tahini, some lemons, cannellini beans, and a Harissa-infused Texas olive oil should prepare you for any social occasion. Only a good quality, extra-virgin oil can make the dish work and Texas olive oil is where you can get it. Now answer the door--that might be the guests!
