Moroccan Hoummus with Raz el Hanout and saffron


Hoummus with Raz el Hanout

Lunch, I think many times, the most difficult meal to come on what to eat. It is not always willing or able to eat leftovers from yesterday’s dinner.
Today was such a day for me. And to go shopping was not in my planning because I want to try to empty my food storage. Which is good for me and my wallet.
Then suddenly I remembered a measurement memory from one of my trips. A small, small local resturant with a few tables and a few chairs. Here was served the most delicious hoummus I tasted. The sun, the warmth, the smells and the talks that were held around the table I was sitting, I will never forget.
Hoummus with Raz el Hanout
1 can of chickpeas
1 crushed clove of garlic
1 pinch saffron
1 tbsp Raz el hanout
1 teaspoon cumin
1 tbsp fresh coriander
3 tablespoons parsley
juice of half a lemon
salt olive oil
Put everything in a mix and run until smooth. Add any more olive oil until you get a desired consistency on the hoummus.

You can find Raz el hanout atΒ OLiOLi

    I like it a lot – EXCEPT FOR the (ugh !) coriander. Coriander makes me throw up. I’d use parsely.

      That Raz el hanout looks great! And totally right. I would use a bit more then they say but that is me πŸ™‚
      For the translation… Raz means head and el hanout med salesman in arabic, so the correct transaltion is the head of the salesman. πŸ™‚
      I love coriander but I know some need to get use to it.

        Your welcoem πŸ™‚ Im happy to help πŸ™‚

    2. Sorry to intercept here…you could make your own ras el hanout…?

      1. Dinner Bank says:

        Its possible to do so but in a good Raz el hanout, its about 30 different kinds of spices. So you need a lot of different spices at home.

      2. I know, I’d like the challenge though!! And being able to tailor it to my tastes. I think when I run out of my shop bought mix I may give it a go…;)

      3. Dinner Bank says:

        I have a recipe from my husbands family but as its a well kept one, I cant give it away, sorry. You need to get the right balance of the spices to get the best result.

  4. You knew I’d like this!!!

    1. Dinner Bank says:

      Of course my friend πŸ™‚

      1. Ha ha!! I think you and I could very happily share a kitchen or eating space!!
