How easy is it to make hummus? Easy-peasy! I swear

I put off buying “tahini” for a very very long time cause it was “relatively expensive”

So this is how I made my own tahini as well as hummus.




Green chili

Chickpeas/Garbanzo beans/White channa

Sun-dried tomatoes/olives/roasted garlic/roasted red pepper – flavoring ingredient


1. Toast the sesame seeds – about 3 tbsp till they turn slightly browned and oily looking

2. Blend them up into a paste

3. In the same blender. Add chickpeas, green chili, flavoring ingredient of your choice and whirl it again

4. Add water to get it into a paste like consistency. Typically the hummus calls for olive oil, but in adding water, i find that the taste isnt noticeable!

5. Viola! Your hummus is done! Eat with cut up veggies or crackers etc.

I attempted to make my own granola bars. Instead I got oats soaked granola.

It looked like this with bits of chocolate in it. However it was just wasn’t dry and was very moist. I had added olive oil & a little organic milk which soaked the oats.

I liked eating it yesterday, but today it tasted real bad. Oh well.. failed attempts.

Here is the modified recipe (which wont fail!)

Almond chocolate oat granola

1 cup rolled oats (Red Mill)

1 /2 cup almonds

2 pieces of dark chocolate chopped up

2 tbsp honey

Method: Toast the oats & almonds in a cookie tray at 325 in the oven for about 10 minutes. Mix in the rest of the ingredients and toast for another 10 minutes.

Total cooking time: 20 minutes
