Hummas - Chickpeas
AccuChef v6.6 from SIVART Software
C:\PROGRAM FILES\ACCUCHEF6\BOOK1.RWZ - AccuChef v6.6 1996-2004 SIVART
Yield: 10 Servings

A Hummas made right, will not make you feel heavy or bloated after you eat it. To solve the gas problem, soak the dried chickpeas in clean water for 10 - 15 hours, switch them at least once, and take off the foam that appears over the boiling water during the cooking. If you're extra sensitive, put one bay leave into the cooking pot. I have tried many hummus recipes and this one I have found to be the best.

1 Cups Dried Chickpeas (smallest 1/2 Teaspoon Cumin
-You Can Find) 1 Tablespoon, 1/8 & 1/4 Baking Soda
1/2 Cups Tahini Salt
1 Lemon, Juiced Olive Oil
2-3 Cloves Garlic, Chopped Parsley

1. Pour the chickpeas over a large plate. Cover them and look for damaged grains small stones, or any other thing you would rather leave out of the plate.

2. Wash the chickpeas several times, until the water is transparent. Soak them in clean water over night with 1 tablespoon of baking soda. Then wash them, and soak again in tap water for a few more hours. The grains should absorb most of the water and almost double their volume.

3. Wash the chickpeas well and put them in a large pot. Cover with water, add the rest of the baking soda and NO salt. Cook until the grains are very easily smashed when pressed between two fingers. It should take around 1 -1.5 hours, during which it is advised to switch the water once again, and remove the peels and foam which float over the cooking water. When done, sieve the grains and keep the cooking water.

4. Put the chickpeas into a food processor and grind well. Leave it to chill a little while before you continue.

5. Add the Tahini and the rest of the ingredients and go on with the food processor until you get the desired texture. If the Hummus is too thick, add some of the cooking water. It should be thinner than the actual desired texture.

Serve with some good olive oil and chopped parsley. You can also mix in a variety of other items such as roasted peppers, chopped calimara olives, sprinkle Parmesan cheese on top, use your imagination.

AccuChef v6.6 from SIVART Software
C:\PROGRAM FILES\ACCUCHEF6\BOOK1.RWZ - AccuChef v6.6 1996-2004 SIVART
Yield: 6 Servings

Made 6-18-11 for Mondo Zen Retreat. Heat oven to 350 Degrees, bake 40-50 Minutes. It was wonderful and many people enjoyed the custard.

4 Eggs, Beaten 1 Tsp Vanilla
Dash Cinnamon 1/2 Tsp Salt
1/3 Cups Real Maple Syrup 1 1/2 Cups Peaches Or Fruit In
Dash Nutmeg -Season (optional), Sliced
2 1/2 Cups Milk

Beat eggs, slowly adding other ingredients (Except peaches or fruit in season). You can use either a wire whisk, an electric mixer or a blender.

Pour into oven proof custard cups. Place the cups in a deep baking pan. Fill the pan with hot water, almost to the level of the custard. Bake (add the peach slices after 20 minutes) When you remove the pan from the oven, remove the cups from the pan, otherwise the custard will continue to cook. Cool to room temperature, then chill thoroughly.

For glazed custard: cook 1/2 cup honey in a saucepan until it turns dark. Ladle a little hot honey into each cup so that it coats the bottom. Pour in custard and bake as directed. Before serving loosen edges with a knife and turn custard out , upside down.
