Why don't you just make it? Can you buy chickpeas at Edeka or Aldi or wherever? If you can find chickpeas, I have a recipe that uses ground sunflower seeds instead of tahini. Or you can grind your own sesame seeds. Alternately you could make hummus with white cannelini beans (kleine weisse Bohnen). Let me know if you want the recipe.
No trouble at all! I make it about once a week so the recipe is in my head
1 can chickpeas or white/cannelini beans 1 tab tahini or ground sunflower seeds 1/4 cup olive oil 1/4 cup lemon juice (or to taste) 1 garlic clove 1/2 tsp salt (or to taste) 1 tsp cumin pepper to taste
Puree in blender or food processor.
I variously add some rosemary, or a hint of curry powder, or a little bit of sweet Thai chili sauce if I want spicy hummus.
as a houmous lover (but non-resident of Germany), I'm delighted to see so many posts on this topic! amazing what you miss when you're overseas..Personally, I'd love to be able to get salt & vinegar rice-cakes...
I used to have to make it when I lived abroad - ex-yugoslavia. I used to buy a jar of tahini when I was in the UK and I could get tinned chickpeas locally (I bet you can too), so it was easy to make. If you live abroad and begin to crave things from back home, its a good idea to stock up on these sort of ingredients when in the Uk.
