My sister and I have a Saturday night ritual now where I go round her house on Saturday evening and we drink vodka, watch/laugh at Casualty* and Two Broke Girls**, and, when we are suitably smashed, make hummus with crispbreads to help soak up the alcohol. ‘Cos that’s how we roll, motherfuckers.
The recipe goes somewhat like this – feel free to get absolutely hammered to get that authentic Drunk Hummus Party vibe:
Tin chickpeas, drained and simmered for 10 minutes to make them easy to mash with a potato masher.
Two cloves garlic, finely chopped.
Decent dash lemon juice.
Small dash of cumin.
Sprinkle of salt.
Paprika and olive oil
Couple tablespoonfuls of tahini OR equivalent amount of smooth peanut butter combined with sesame oil.
Simmer and then mash the chickpeas, holding a little of the water back. Combine with the other ingredients to taste and either by hand or via food processor create a smooth paste, adding some of the chickpea water if needed. Sprinkle with paprika and a couple of tablespoonfuls of olive oil, then serve warm with crispbreads and salad.
