It takes minutes to throw together, especially if you use canned chickpeas, and homemade hummus tastes so much better then store-bought that you'll never go back to buying ready-made.
2 large organic egg yolks
2 tsp white wine vinegar
1 tsp Dijon mustard
Juice of ½ lemon
1 ½ cups canola oil
Salt and freshly cracked black pepper
In a bowl, whisk together egg yolks, vinegar, mustard, salt and lemon juice. Gradually drizzle in oil, whisking constantly until think and emulsified. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
Transfer to an airtight container and refrigerate for up to 5 days.
Makes 2 cups.
TIP: To successfully pour oil and whisk at the same time, it can help to place a damp towel under the bowl to prevent it from spinning.
