Loving-Kindness Hummus Recipe

1 cup chickpeas (or favas, lentils or peas)
1 carrot, large
3 garlic cloves (or more)
1 bay leaf
2 lemons, juiced
1/2 cup sesame tahini
salt to taste

Soak chickpeas in 3 cups of cold water for at least four hours. Rinse and add fresh water to cover. Simmer for 90 minutes with coarsely chopped carrot, bay leaf and whole, peeled garlic cloves until tender. Drain, reserving the cooking liquid.

Remove bay leaf and mash the rest while still hot. Stir in lemon juice, tahini and crushed or finely chopped garlic. Add small amounts of cooking liquid until desired moistness is reached. Salt to taste.



Serve with whole-grain crackers or pita bread as an appetizer or snack. Makes a good sandwich spread, too. Serves 4.
