For the love of the Norfolk Broads

A couple of paintings that capture what the Norfolk Broads mean to me, no words are needed.

One of my favorite snacks.....enjoy

I have been making food processor Hummus for many years from a recipe by N Z cook Jo Seeger,and would like to think its pretty good.

I just use the canned chickpeas, however it is important to drain (save juice) them and thoroughly wash them before you start whizzing.

Here is the recipe.

Hummus.... Makes 1½ Cups

1 x 425g can chickpeas, drained and washed... Reserve the liquid.

2 Cloves of garlic, crushed....1 teaspoon

Juice and grated rind of 2 lemons.

5 tablespoons tahini (sesame paste)

1 teaspoon ground cumin....or to taste

2 tablespoons of olive oil

Salt to taste.

Blitz the chickpeas,garlic,lemon juice and grated rind,tahini and cumin,slowly adding the reserved chickpea liquid to get the desired consistency.

Drizzle in olive oil to taste.

Sprinkle with smoked paprika when in bowl.

Enjoy with your preferred garnish.
